The National Federation of the Blind of the United Kingdom (NFBUK) is an independent, non-political, self-help campaigning pressure group and registered charity. It was founded in 1947 by blind and partially-sighted people.
NFBUK have representatives on numerous committees of other organisations of and for blind and partially sighted people. They campaign to improve the overall welfare and quality of daily life for all blind and partially-sighted people, including those whose sight impairment is part of multi-disability, in the United Kingdom.
They have a network of local branches around the country and a postal branch for those members not able to get to a local group. The NFBUK has an e-group and a national audio magazine where members can exchange views about subjects that affect or interest them. From the office in Wakefield, they provide information for their members in their branches in Braille, large-print and various forms of audio media.
