Charity information

Royal National Institute of Blind People (RNIB)

Royal National Institute of Blind People (RNIB) is the UK's leading charity offering information, support and advice to almost two million people with sight loss.

Founded 1868

  • Mission statement

    RNIB - supporting blind and partially sighted people.

    RNIB's pioneering work helps anyone with a sight problem - not just with braille and Talking Books, but with imaginative and practical solutions to everyday challenges. We also provide information on eye conditions and provide support and advice for people living with sight loss.

    People are still losing their sight unnecessarily. We campaign to eliminate avoidable sight loss and support research into sight loss and eye health issues.

    How your donation helps
    Your support helps us rebuild lives devastated by sight loss. Right now we can only reach one in three of the people who need our help most.

    87p of every pound we receive goes directly to helping blind and partially sighted children and adults, so you can be sure that your donation is going where it matters most.

    £30 could help train parents to teach braille, so that blind children can grow up to achieve the same as their peers in education and employment.
    £50 could pay for a Birthday Book, so we can send every child their favourite book in the format they want on their birthday.
    £70 could help give someone Talking Books for a whole year, offering comfort and companionship to someone who may feel isolated from the world.
    £100 could pay for a full day recording of Talking Newspapers so we can help people with sight loss to stay connected to the world around them through audio versions of the daily papers they've read all their lives.

    Thank you for your support.
