About us

At Royal National Institute of Blind People (RNIB), we recognise everyone’s unique experience of sight loss and offer help and support for blind and partially sighted people – this can be anything from practical and emotional support, campaigning for change, reading services and the products we offer in our online shop.

How your donations help:

£5 could enable our Sight Loss Advisers to answer a call to the Helpline.

£50 could help someone with sight loss get the support of an ECLO from the point of diagnosis, so that they can face the future with confidence.

£400 could help two people continue on a confident life journey by attending a 6 day Living with Sight Loss course.

£1500 could help end the isolation of sight loss by adding a new Talking Book to our free to use digital library service.

We are also catalyst for change – inspiring people with sight loss to transform their own personal experience, their community and, ultimately, society as a whole. Our focus is on giving them the help, support and tools they need to realise their aspirations.

Everyday 250 people begin to lose their sight. RNIB has a crucial role to play in creating a world where there are no barriers to people with sight loss. We want society, communities and individuals to see differently about sight loss.
