Join VICTA for a sleepover!

As well as taking part in lots of fun and exciting activities such as sensory art, sporty games and access to the New College Worcester (NCW) youth club (air hockey, Lego, musical instruments, pool table and more), your child will also meet lots of new people and make new friends.

With the support of the independent living skills team at NCW, your child will have a go at cooking and helping out with making lunch and dinner (including food prep and washing up). The NCW team will also provide support in developing other key skills.

We appreciate that growing up with sight loss can bring practical, emotional and social challenges. Our pre-teen activities are designed to provide hands-on learning in fun, safe and supportive environments.
