British Wireless for the Blind Fund has been making a difference to people with sight loss since 1928. Having access to radio and everything it offers is as important now as it was then.
We have three specially adapted models currently available to meet different listening needs:
- The Duet 2 is an FM/DAB radio with station pre-sets.
- The Concerto 2 is an FM/DAB radio with facilities to play audio files from tapes, CDs, SD cards and USB memory sticks.
- The Sonata plus+ accesses radio stations and web-based content through the internet, and reads text web pages through its internal text to speech engine.
Anyone who is registered either blind or partially sighted, over the age of eight, living in the UK and in current receipt of a means-tested benefit qualifies for a free set. If you think you are eligible for a radio from us, we have local agents who can help you process your request.
Alternatively you can choose to buy from our sister company BWBF Direct. (All profits go to the fund).
