Life Through Our Eyes – Feach Conference Sept 2024

Féach is having their annual conference in September in Dublin on Saturday 28th.


Our Key note speaker is Mark Pollock and he will be joined by Bobbie Hickey who will talk about her experiences of school, college and work as a young person losing her sight. We will also have a panel of young people with VI, including Caoimhe Grogan and Shane Early who will talk about their experiences in college and work.


This conference aims to create more awareness around vision impairment, as a minority disability people often have little understanding of its impact and more worryingly underestimate the ability of those with low vision.  We want to let these young people have their say and change the narrative around VI.


We recommend the conference for anyone with VI over 14 and for any adult supporting young people with VI. Parents, teachers, employers, SNAs, vision loss professionals, guidance counsellors etc are all welcome.
