Your kind donations make experiences like this possible! Last year we raised a whopping £4,000. It is this generous support that enables us to sustain and expand our services for VI people in Oxfordshire. Our new programme for children and young people is continuing to flourish, and our technology training service has seen a 142% rise in demand!
