After careful consideration, with regret we have decided to cancel the Usher Kids Family Event. We have been closely monitoring the coronavirus (COVID19) situation, including government and Public Health England advice and we have not taken this decision lightly.
On Saturday 4 July Usher Kids UK, supported by Retina UK, will be holding a one-day event for children and their families at:
The Sense Touchbase Pears Centre
750 Bristol Road
The event is free to attend. It will give children living with Usher syndrome and their siblings the chance to meet others who share similar experiences, and to build friendships whilst making memories and having fun!
Whilst the kids are kept busy the parents and carers can hear from Usher syndrome experts from the fields of ophthalmology, research, technology, education and emotional support. The specialists will be able to give tailored information to help deal with the challenges that Usher syndrome can present. There will be opportunities to hear from inspirational young adults living with Usher syndrome, and plenty of time to build your own networks and chat about common issues with other parents.
We really look forward to welcoming you to the event, and to making our Usher Kids community even stronger!
