When Blind Veterans UK was founded in 1915, our mission was to help soldiers blinded during the First World War. Today we offer lifelong support to Armed Forces and National Service veterans - no matter what the cause of their sight loss, and regardless of how long they served. We help blind and vision impaired ex-Service personnel regain their independence and discover life after sight loss.

Our goal is to achieve victory over blindness and we do this by providing a high quality national support to blind veterans, as and where they need it, in order to help them achieve independence and fulfilment, transforming their lives. Our values underpin what we do and “We Work Together as One Team” to achieve this. If you like the sound of who we are and what we do, please read on to find out about this opportunity.
