Support our work

We need to raise £650,000 a year to fulfil the anticipated demand for 3,500 of our specially adapted radios and combined radio/audio players. Requests for our sets come in daily.

Although advances in medical science mean more eye disorders are now treatable, there are still many people for whom there is no cure and who turn to us for a radio when they can no longer see sufficiently to operate a standard set.

No longer able to read or watch television, radio becomes a major source of news, information and entertainment for blind and partially sighted people – a lifeline to the world. It also provides companionship and a comforting voice.

With no government funding, we are entirely reliant on the generosity of our supporters to continue providing our service to the people with sight loss who are most in need.

The importance of providing sets which are easy for a blind person to operate independently cannot be underestimated amd any amount you can donate to us or raise for us will make a difference.
