Our Sports Participation Coordinator, Luke, offers a variety of sport and recreational opportunities for people living with sight loss across Birmingham.

Luke works in partnership with other organisations to provide a range of sports and active leisure as well as working one on one with clients of all ages and abilities. 

We aim to provide something for everyone, we understand that most sports aren’t everyone’s cup of tea, so we also offer walking groups and more gentle ways to keep active.
