Service description:
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.

What do we do?
With representatives on numerous committees of other organisations of and for blind and partially sighted people, we 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.

How do we meet and operate?
We 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 our office in Wakefield, we provide information for our members in their branches in Braille, large-print and various forms of audio media.
