The Outlook Trust is a charity for blind and visually impaired children and young people that organises and provides activity and residential breaks for six weekends a year, and a week during the summer holidays.
Activities include: blind sailing; paddling across a lake in a double kayak; tree climbing; abseiling; zip wire; and scrambling over river rocks. Three current Moor End students are regular participants in these weekends.
The Outlook Trust has given me a sense of adventure and more self-confidence, and has provided lots of new opportunities that I would have otherwise been unable to access anywhere else.
It was nice to be outside and to interact with people and physically interact with them in person. This made me feel better. The landscape was quite nice, but the lakes were freezing.
I like the Outlook Trust because I can learn to be independent, meet new friends and I have fun. The last time I went, we could jump into a lake which is my favourite thing to do.
