Continued support during the festive season

Christmas is traditionally a time spent surrounded by friends and family.

Sadly, for many blind veterans, this won’t be happening this year. The isolation often caused by aging is only intensified by sight loss. And this year the pandemic has made it even worse.

We are doing all we can in order to help with isolation and keep blind veterans connected during the Christmas period and beyond.

Making sure they are not alone

Our training and rehabilitation centre in Llandudno will be welcoming a special group of blind veterans who are most in need of our support right now. These veterans would have otherwise been completely alone but will now be spending Christmas and New Year together.

We are also using technology to adapt our services and reach as many blind veterans as we can. Leading up to Christmas we will be hosting over 80 community social group phone calls and virtual get-togethers. The veterans will be enjoying quizzes, jokes, carols and group chats to make sure they’re not alone during the festive period.

If you can, please give to help us support our struggling blind veterans this winter, and beyond.
