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.

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.

From our office in Wakefield, we provide information for our members in their branches in Braille, large-print and various forms of audio media.
