We are all born but we are not all born the same. At Sensing Friends we celebrate this, supporting young people to come together and embrace their similarities and differences.
Supporting visually impaired young people and their peers form deeper friendships within the community
The Circle Of Friendship Program
Fostering positive, equal, friendships between visually impaired young people and their sighted peers.
- A monthly seasonal year long program
- Set in beautiful countryside
- With music, storytelling, cooking and creativity
What we do
With the help of nature and creativity we help young people explore how they feel about themselves, their relationships with others and with the world around them.
Why this is important
Belonging is a need we all have. Feeling excluded or unable to join in, for whatever reason, can bring up many deep emotional issues for young people.
How we help
With the help of music, nature, creative art projects, peer support groups and one to one support, we help young people tap into difficult feelings they may have about themselves and others and find a way to overcome them.
