Directions – Young Adult Peer Support Group

Young adults who are living with sight loss may face particular challenges and difficulties. Priorities relating to study, embarking on further education, job-seeking, securing independence and relationship difficulties can often be difficult to navigate and manage.

During these times many people find it useful to talk through their feelings and experiences with someone outside their usual circle of family and friends. Often by meeting with others who have faced similar difficulties, vital support can be found.

This group will meet on the third Thursday of the month from 6.30-7:30pm.  There are places available for new members and we’d be very happy to answer any questions potential participants may have.

The group will take place on Zoom (training on Zoom can be provided by Fighting Blindness in advance of joining).

If you think this may be of interest to you or someone you know, please contact us on 01-6746496 or email

We’ll be happy to answer any questions you may have about the group and it will also give us the chance to get a sense of your support needs and what kind of service you feel would be helpful.

Please note that this is not formal Group Therapy.
