British Wireless for the Blind Fund
Keeping blind people in touch with the world.
NEW for 2018! OPUS
Introducing the new Opus DAB/DAB+/FM RDS/Bluetooth portable digital radio
With Bluetooth audio streaming from a smart device, USB recording and playback, Opus also has a large easy-to-read LCD display with zoom function. Its 10 one-touch radio station presets and built-in battery charging means Opus really is more than just a radio.
Living with sight loss can be lonely and isolating – so British Wireless aims to ease these feelings by providing the companionship of a radio.
We supply specially adapted audio equipment on a free loan basis to visually impaired people across the UK who would not otherwise be able to afford it.
With no government funding, it is only thanks to the continued kindness of our supporters that we can carry on helping the people with sight loss who need it most.
We are a national charity with a regional focus, centered on individual contact and personal service – so all our equipment is hand delivered.
The number of people living with sight loss is set to double to more than four million by 2050 so there will always be a need for our sets and services.About us
