Look Essex is the voluntary organisation dedicated to raising awareness, and providing information and services for children and young people with visual impairment, their carers and their families in Essex. The Organisation is managed and co-ordinated by professionalised volunteers, who are DBS vetted and motivated to make a difference.

Look Essex gained independent charity status in July 2000, with the clear aim of offering relief for children and young people with visual impairment, by providing advice, support and other assistance and services, for them, their families and carers. These aims have enabled us to assist young people with their own and the Organisation's development, whereby young people are involved as Trustees and as Project Group Managers, to ensure succession and innovative thinking.
