About the organisation

At Blind Veterans UK, we provide veterans with rehabilitation, training, practical advice and emotional support.

We’re one transformational team that believes every vision-impaired veteran should be able to lead the life they choose.  We help blind ex-Servicemen and women of every generation. Since 1915, we’ve provided support to tens of thousands of vision-impaired veterans.

Together we can help rebuild blind veterans’ lives after sight loss. Away from isolation. Towards a life of fulfilment.
