British Wireless for the Blind Fund
Help us provide blind and partially sighted people with a lifeline to the world
For people with sight loss, life is a challenge. Not just the difficulty of getting out and about, but also the everyday tasks we take for granted – like turning on the radio to listen to the news.
British Wireless for the Blind Fund helps to improve the daily lives of visually impaired people by providing them with a lifeline to the world.
We supply specially adapted audio equipment on a free loan basis to those who are unable to afford a set and who meet our criteria.
BWBF is a national charity with a regional focus, centered on individual contact and personal service – which means all our equipment is hand delivered by a trained worker to someone who is blind or partially sighted.
In the last year, we have supplied more than 3,000 sets and enhanced the lives of all those who received them.
The number of blind and visually impaired people is increasing so we want to up the number of sets we give out annually to at least 3,500 - but we need your help to do that.
We need to raise £650,000 a year to continue providing this vital service to those who need it most and to respond to our daily requests for equipment.
Any support you can give us – whether it’s your time as a volunteer, a donation, or by referring someone who may benefit from our service – will make a real difference.Latest news
