Addventure in Learning Breaks

Addventure logo

We have been asked to let you know about these residential educational breaks from ADDVENTURE IN LEARNING:

AddVenture In Learning is a registered charity which organises residential breaks for visually impaired adults who have a thirst for learning and enjoy socialising with other like-minded people. The organisation is run by a volunteer committee of both sighted and visually impaired people.

The courses are held in different parts of the country. A sighted guide assists each visually impaired person and guide dogs are welcome. Accommodation can vary from hotels to outdoor centres or university halls. Participants must make their own way to the venue, but these are not usually far from a railway station. Course content varies according to the topic and may include talks and associated visits.
