Haggeye - the forum for blind and partially sighted young people in Scotland
Haggeye works with young people living with sight loss in Scotland aged 12 - 25 years, and in partnership with various organisations and service providers. In developing this project, the young people themselves identified the project aim through stating issues that affect them in their everyday lives.
The ultimate aim of the project is to encourage more local and national facilities, services and areas to be made more accessible to people living with sight loss.
Haggeye offers opportunities to enable young people's voices to be heard. It provides opportunities for young people with sight loss to meet new people and make new friends, take part in social activities, discuss issues, influence the provision of services and, importantly, to campaign for change.
