Six-month project for visually impaired children
A SCOTTISH charity is seeking visually impaired children to take part in a project that aims to improve health and fitness.
First Steps, a British Blind Sport initiative supported by Scottish Disability Sport for visually impaired children, is looking for 120 kids aged five to 15 to take part in the six-month project.
The children who take part in the project will receive a free activity pack to help them maintain an active lifestyle.
Scottish Disability Sport said that the risk of inactivity and obesity is even higher for visually impaired children, who face additional barriers to participation such as a lack of inclusive PE teaching in mainstream schools, bullying and lower family income.
If you have a visually impaired child and would like to be involved in the First Steps Project, contact Scottish Disability Sport by telephoning 0131 317 1130 or alternatively email email@example.com.
