Leeds Society for Deaf and Blind People

The Leeds Society for Deaf and Blind People has existed since 1866. Throughout its long history, the single objective has been to respond to the expressed needs and aspirations of deaf, hard of hearing, deafblind, blind and partially sighted people. This has been achieved by the active participation of sensory-impaired people, both as members of committees at every level and as members of staff.

The success of the Society is without doubt due to the active pursuit of this policy. However, sensory-impaired people recognise the value of the large number of people who have given and continue to give their time and talents in a voluntary capacity, and this valuable input has been a significant factor in the progress of the Society.

The National Federation of Families with Visually Impaired Children.

The idea of LOOK was formed by two families who happened to live ten miles apart… but each had a child with the same rare eye condition. One child lacked for nothing from an LEA which believed in supporting VI children; the other was at the mercy of a not-so-caring authority. So the families resolved to get something done about "area disparity of provision"… and LOOK was born.
