Supporting children born without eyes or with underdeveloped eyes

Every year, MACS members are invited to join us at our Family Weekend which takes place at the Park Hall Hotel in Lancashire. In 2017, the event will take place between 28th April to 1st May.

Our Family Weekend gives all our MACS members the chance to get together to share advice and support, make new friends and, most importantly, have fun! There's always lots of events and activities for all of the family to get involved with and MACS the Monkey also joins us by popular demand!

Take 5 minutes to check out our Family Weekend film here! 

A key element of the weekend is the Annual General Meeting. Here any charitable business is discussed and members are voted onto the Board of Trustees. If you are interested in joining the Board, please contact

A range of organisations are also on hand to share information about the latest products and services that may be useful to your child.

Our Regional Supporters also get the chance to meet up and discuss their plans for events during the year, and members have the chance to share their ideas about the sort of events or activities that will benefit you or your child.

Information about MACS' activities for young people is also shared.  So, if your child has expressed an interest in taking part in MACS' sailing voyages or activity weekends, then you can find out more about the activities and any practical considerations.

Please complete our booking form here if you would like to come along to next year's event,

There is a reduced fee if you book before 1st November 2016.

Thank you. We look forward to seeing you in 2017!
