Microphthalmia, Anophthalmia & Coloboma Support - Family support services

What we do

MACS provide emotional and practical support to the families of children born without eyes and partially developed eyes. They put families who have been through similar experiences in touch with each other and publish a newsletter.

MACS provide:

- Emotional support through our helpline and Facebook support group
- Financial assistance by giving our members grants or subsidising family holidays in our 3 caravans
- Peer support and building connections through our national and regional social events – the biggest of which is our annual Family Weekend.
- Confidence building for our children and young people by providing heavily subsidised activity holidays on both land and sea.
- Funding for research into MACS conditions

If you need emotional support, you can call Jenny, one of our Trustees and our Family Support Officer or join our Facebook Support for Families group.
