We have three centres in England and Wales; on the South Coast, in the North of England and in North Wales.
Each centre is a place for recreation, training and rehabilitation for blind veterans and their families. We provide professional support, care and training to help our members enjoy life beyond sight loss, starting by helping people understand the implications of their vision impairment.

What happens at our centres?
Each centre is slightly different, but they all help men and women who have served in the Armed Forces come to terms with their sight loss and build skills to live their lives to the full.
We have an experienced and committed team at each centre who can offer various services to our members.
The Brighton centre offers holidays, respite, training, residential and nursing care, social activities and recreational activities.
The Sheffield centre provides a welcoming family atmosphere for veterans on our residential training courses.
The Llandudno centre offers holidays, respite care (residential and nursing) and training.
Llandudno is our newest centre which overlooks the North Wales resort town with its iconic promenade, pier and the Great Orme. It's accessible to members who would have a long journey to Sheffield or Brighton.
Blind veterans can come to Llandudno for their first visit and assessment. During their introductory week we carefully assess each person's vision impairment, and speak to them and their families about how we can help through training and rehabilitation.
After this visit, members can come back to Llandudno for holidays, respite, and nursing care. As well as helping with fitness and mobility, we give veterans with sight loss the skills they need to live an independent life.
The Sheffield Centre offers a range of rehabilitation and training courses in the North of the country. These courses are designed for up to 12 trainees to stay with us for a variety of training and introductory weeks.
Overlooking Brighton and the English Channel, we moved into our centre at Ovingdean in October 1938.
Visually impaired Veterans can come to the centre for their initial visit and assessment. During their introductory week we carefully assess each person's vision impairment, and speak to them and their families about how we can help through training and rehabilitation.
After this visit, our members can come back to our Brighton centre for holidays, respite, residential and nursing care. As well as helping with fitness and mobility, we give veterans with sight loss the skills they need to live an independent life.
