Royal Society for Blind Children

We create a better life for blind children, by helping every young person we work with to find and fulfil their own unique potential.

  • Mission statement

    We create a better life for blind children, by helping every young person we work with to find and fulfil their own unique potential.

    We are there for them from the moment they are told they have lost their sight, guiding them and their families on their journey through sight loss.

    We provide them with a combination of support,learning and development opportunities to help them develop the resilience and skills they will need to navigate their own futures.

    We support parents to develop the knowledge, skills and confidence to help guide their child through sight loss, via our national Family Support Service and our Advice section.

    We promote best-in-class, inclusive education and learning at all levels, from our residential further education facility, Dorton College, to our Employability course, which helps young blind people develop the skills to get into employment.

    We help blind children and young people to build friendships, grow in independence and improve their resilience, through our Health and Well-being clubs, Social and Peer group (11-17), Social and Peer (18-25), Music Group and more.
