Help for blind and partially sighted people.
The Royal Blind Society has, for the last 140 years, given assistance to people who are blind or partially sighted and in charitable need. We do this by giving cash grants to provide essential support for those on low incomes, and by providing a range of holidays and leisure opportunities.
Every year we make more than 500 grants totalling more than £100,000 to blind and visually impaired people on low incomes. These are given for a wide range of purposes, and make dramatic changes to people’s lives, helping them live with dignity and independence.
Our grants also help young people to have adventure holidays, such as with the Calvert Trust or on a tall ship voyage, and can help provide IT equipment, reading and literacy aids. This can transform their educational and employment prospects.
Each year a further 3,000 visually impaired people can enjoy a holiday at one of the Society's specially adapted hotels. A significant number of these people may be coming to terms with the recent loss of sight. For others it may be their first break away from home for many years.
