Research and innovation
Blind Veterans UK has always been known for its pioneering spirit. Our founder, Sir Arthur Pearson, was clear that our charity should make a difference, both for blind veterans today and for humanity tomorrow.
In 2017, we set up a research and innovation department to focus on these activities.
The success and growth of our research programme has now led us to set this department up as an independent, sister charity within the Blind Veterans UK group.
This new research and innovation charity is called BRAVO VICTOR. It conducts research with, and on behalf of, our blind veterans, as well as international veteran communities and organisations across the sight loss sector.
BRAVO VICTOR aims to build a better understanding of the underlying causes and risk factors associated with sight loss, as well as associated disabilities and health issues, and find solutions to the problems and barriers of living with visual impairment.
