Organisation aims / mission / values

  • No child in the UK should grow up to be poor or lonely just because they are blind.

    We are on a mission to make sure every single blind child has the self-belief and skills to fulfil the potential we know they’ve got.
  • There are an estimated 36,000 blind and partially sighted children and young people in England and Wales.

    Every day four more children will be diagnosed with sight loss. Currently, 90% of those who lose their sight in youth won’t work for more than six months in their lives. Most will never have someone to share their life with.
  • The Royal Society for Blind Children believe in a better life for blind children.

    Make no mistake – helping blind children to believe they can achieve will take time and money. But we’ll do it from the ground up, working with our wonderful donors and volunteers to deliver the five things we believe will transform the life chances of every blind child in England and Wales.

How we deliver these aims

How we help 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. 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.

Who benefits from our work

We provide a range of services in London and across England and Wales for blind and partially sighted children and young people, their families, and the professionals who work alongside them.
