The Government of Jersey is today launching a campaign inviting Islanders to apply to become Specialist Short Break Carers for children with disabilities.
Specialist Short Break Carers provide one-to-one support for children with disabilities and complex needs by supporting them to develop life skills by taking part in social activities either in their own home, in their carers’ home, or in the community. fb.watch/35i_3-CySU/ ... See MoreSee Less

Timeline PhotosDOES YOUR CHILD NEED GLASSES?
EYECAN, the charity supporting Islanders with impaired sight, has launched a voucher scheme funding up to £90 towards the cost of prescription glasses for Island children under the age of 8.
Ed Daubeney, President of EYECAN explains, “EYECAN supports Islanders with sight loss but it also works to promote eye health. A comprehensive eye examination is so important for children as early detection and treatment provide the best opportunity to correct vision problems. For this reason, the EYECAN voucher is available to all Island children under the age of 8. There is no means testing involved. We don’t want financial considerations to deter any family from providing the best care for their child’s eyes.”
The voucher scheme is the initiative of Sarah Evans, EYECAN Committee member and Senior Orthoptist at the Hospital Eye Department. She explains, “Vision doesn't just happen. A child's brain learns how to use eyes to see, just as it learns how to use legs to walk or a mouth to form words, so the longer a vision problem goes undiagnosed and untreated, the more chance the child will have sight problems that last a lifetime. This initiative will support children academically, socially and athletically.”
Leaflets featuring integral vouchers have been distributed to Jersey’s primary schools, pre-schools and nurseries. Vouchers are also available at Participating Opticians and can be downloaded from EYECAN’s website www.eyecan.je/voucher-scheme/the-scheme/
Parents and guardians can claim one EYECAN voucher per child in any 12-month period by entering their child’s JY number and date of birth on the voucher and presenting it at one of the opticians participating in the scheme.
