RNIB is the UK’s leading charity offering information, support and advice to over 2 million people with sight loss. Its work helps anyone with sight problems, not just with Braille and talking books but with practical solutions to everyday challenges. RNIB has a helpline for people with sight loss called Talk and Support, and has information and discussion forums on the Parent’s Place website for parents of children with sight loss.
RNIB funds research into the causes of sight loss and into developing treatments of eye disease. It campaigns to move sight loss higher up the government’s health priorities, and thus increase eye screenings and ensure new treatments are available on the NHS.
