Royal National Institute of Blind People (RNIB) is there to support everyone affected by sight loss. Whether you’re losing your sight or you’re blind or partially sighted, their practical and emotional support can help you face the future with confidence.
 
Emotional and practical support
 
              They offer emotional and practical support through the Helpline and Sight Loss Counselling team. They also offer advice about money, eye health and how to access local services.
 
Campaigning for you
 
They also campaign to ensure proven treatments for sight-threatening conditions are available on the NHS. They also campaign to raise awareness of sight issues including how to prevent sight problems.
 
Making services more accessible
 
They work to make services more accessible such as transport and getting around, shopping and banks and banking to enable more people with sight loss to live independently. They also work to influence partners across the world to make using products and technology easier.
