Founded in 2016, Eye Heroes is the UK’s first child-led campaign to fight avoidable blindness. Eye Heroes is a volunteer-led intervention designed to raise awareness about eye health. Children aged 8-12 are trained through short, interactive volunteer-led workshops in schools to become champions of eye health to inform people in their communities about the importance of regular eye tests. The workshops are run for free by local volunteers, marrying the science of eye health with the pressing need to raise awareness in a fun and memorable way.
