Our vision, mission and values

Robbie Roberts

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 vision: our ultimate goal
We believe that no one who has served our country should have to battle blindness alone.

Our mission: how we'll make our vision happen
All blind veterans should have access to the finest quality of services to help them discover life beyond sight loss.

Our values

Our values underpin the way we work and interact with each other, and how we deliver services to blind veterans. Built around the central statement "We work together as One Team", our values are:

• Caring is at the heart of everything we do
• We enable and trust each other
• We foster a pioneering spirit
• We celebrate success!​
