Angel Eyes

Supporting the visually impaired

Angel Eyes NI is a small charity based in Belfast, set up in 2007 by parents of visually impaired children to improve the support available to other parents in the same situation.

The charity offers a range of services to families including an Education Service, Saturday Club and advocacy work delivered through its full and part time staff and 44 volunteers.

The Halifax Foundation in Northern Ireland, one of the first funders of Angel Eyes, are proud to have supported it with five Community Grants since 2014.

In April Lord Blackwell, Chairman of Lloyds Banking Group, visited and met with CEO Sara McCracken and her team, and some of the parents and the children this charity works hard to support. It was a great chance to experience the innovative Virtual Reality app funded through the Foundation, which helps parents and professionals see the world through the eyes of a partially sighted child.
