Support for loved ones and carers

We’re not just here for our blind veterans. We’re also here for those who care for our beneficiaries, day in, day out.

We know how difficult it can be for spouses, partners and family members when someone loses their sight. And we know how important it is for carers to care for themselves too.

We offer advice and support for carers to help them adjust to looking after someone with a vision impairment.

We’ll make sure that you’re caring for yourself too, and connect you with other carers with similar experiences so you can share your story and learn from others.

The support from Blind Veterans UK has been amazing for both of us. When Bob goes to the Brighton Centre I get a little break and can spend some time in the garden. We’re both so grateful.
