Welcome to Blind Veterans UK

We helped veteran Ken rebuild his life after his sight failed, his wife died and he became isolated and lonely. Watch how his life turned around when he joined our charity.

Blind Veterans UK helps vision-impaired ex-Servicemen and women to rebuild their lives after sight loss.

We provide rehabilitation, training, practical advice and emotional support to veterans regardless of how or when they lost their sight. We’re here to help blind veterans regain their independence and live the life they choose.
