Services and organisations that have the Local Offer flash have filled out inclusion information, meaning that they meet the needs of people with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND)

InFocus offers a range of educational, care and support services to children and young adults with visual impairment and other complex needs (including PMLD, Autistic Spectrum Disorder, severe learning disabilities, moderate learning needs, multi-sensory impairment, Cerebral palsy, social and emotional needs).

Our services include:

Education provision

  • Day or residential placements for a 38 week academic year in College (16 to 25). These can be full time or part time
  • 38 week education placements plus 14 week additional residential support for an all year round package

Therapy, mobility and health

  • mobility and orientation support from our ROVI team

All our specialists in therapy mobility and health are employed directly by the charity (not a bought-in service that you might find elsewhere). This means that they get to know all our young people and contribute to a truly holistic programme of support.

  • Jigsaw, a day centre service for young adults living the community
  • Onsite and offsite supported living services
