About us

We are the UK's leading charity offering information, support and advice to over two million people with sight loss. Our pioneering work helps anyone with a sight problem - not just with braille and Talking Books, but with imaginative and practical solutions to everyday challenges. We are a membership organisation with over 10,000 members who are blind, partially sighted or the friends and family of people with sight loss. 80 per cent of our Trustees and Assembly Members are blind or partially sighted. We encourage members to be involved in our work and regularly consult with them on government policy and their ideas for change. As a campaigning organisation of blind and partially sighted people, we fight for the rights of people with sight loss of all ages in each of the UK’s countries.
