Eye Opportunity Group is a Support Group for Families who have Children with Additional Needs. We help Children aged 0-5 with Disabilities or Learning Difficulties and offer Support to Parents/Carers

Founded 1983

  • Mission statement

    Eye Opportunity Group aims to give children who are disadvantaged Equal Opportunities so that their disabilities or special needs do not prevent them from participating in similar activities that other children can enjoy. Eye Opportunity Group aims to support families who have children aged 0-5 with disabilities or learning difficulties. We run play sessions for the children, catering for their individual needs. We aim to stimulate the children's development through enjoyable and safe play activities. We have a high staff ratio so that the children get one-to-one attention and are able to benefit from specialised toys and play equipment. We aim to offer multi-faceted support and guidance to parents and carers, so that they may also be treated equally and be accepted by society. We are based in a small cottage with a warm friendly atmosphere; we adhere to Health & Safety, Safeguarding Children and Equal Opportunities policies and our staff are trained in Child Care as well as First Aid, Makaton, Autism, Family Support and regularly update all relevant areas of training. We run with the assistance of dedicated Volunteers, both as Play workers and to provide Transport. We are run by a Management Committee made up of mostly parent members as well as local residents with relevant experience and expertise. We organise fundraising events and seek funds in order to continue run this unique service to disadvantaged families in the North Suffolk and South Norfolk area.
