We the leading organisation supporting vision impaired ex-Service men and women, regardless of how long or when they served. We get our members back on their feet, recovering their independence and discovering a life beyond sight loss.
Our top quality services include providing lifelong welfare support, rehabilitation, training, long-term nursing, residential and respite care. Sight loss isn't temporary - we support every veteran and their family for the rest of their lives.
Blind Veterans UK has a very diverse membership including veterans who served in WW2, ex-Service personnel suffering from macular degeneration and young men who have been injured while serving in Afghanistan. Regardless of their age or cause of sight loss, all our members feel like they are part of a strong, positive community of people who understand what sight loss means to a veteran. The spirit of mutual support is vital, and helps our members to rediscover confidence and hope.
