Useful Vision Partnership Set To Benefit Foundation Blind Football Programme

A new partnership between Newcastle United Foundation and Newcastle based charity Useful Vision is set to benefit visually impaired and blind children in the North East.

As part of the joint-initiative the Foundation will offer young children who currently work with Useful Vision the opportunity to take part in free weekly football sessions.

Delivered by specialist Foundation staff, the sessions are designed to teach children who are visually impaired or blind to learn new skills and gain confidence, not only in sport but in all aspects of their daily lives.

As a result of the quality coaching, the Foundation is now recognised as an established FA Regional Talent Centre, helping develop the next generation of Blind and VI footballers.

Reggie Dornan, Senior Disability Football Development Officer, said: โ€œWe are pleased to formalise our partnership with Useful Vision.

โ€œA number of children have already joinedย our weekly VI football club, which is now growing considerably, and this partnership will allow us to further our reach and open up our sessions to more participants than ever before.

Useful Vision provide accessible, positive opportunities and activities to visually impaired children and their families throughout the North East region.

Rebecca Wilson, Useful Vision Trustee, added: โ€œUseful Vision Trustees are delighted to be involved with Newcastle United Foundation.

โ€œWe are always looking for new exciting opportunities for visually impaired children in the region to access activities and the Foundation provides an excellent way for the children to engage with sport in a well-supported, and safe environment, whilst having fun and learning new skills in football.โ€

Our weekly indoor visually impaired and blind football club takes place on Wednesdays 5.30-6.30pm at Walker Activity Dome. You can find more info about the sessions here.
