Care

At Blind Veterans UK our aim is to enable ex-Service men and women to live independent lives wherever possible. But some blind veterans need a little more help.

The nursing and social care services available at our centres at Brighton and Llandudno offer physical, social and intellectual stimulation in a safe and comfortable setting.

Our care services are accessible to blind veterans who:

  • Have sustained other illnesses and disabilities alongside their blindness
  • Don't have family help to stay self-sufficient at home
  • Will benefit from a temporary stay to recover from an illness, or give their full-time carers a break
  • Need support during their old age


There is always demand for our care facilities, and we offer them in specific circumstances:

  • Permanent placements: are offered on a needs basis with priority given to war-blinded ex-service men and women¬†
  • Respite stays: are arranged subject to availability, and are available at both our Brighton and Llandudno centres

Please note: Permanent places are only available at our Brighton centre and currently permanent social care placements are only available to those who have been supported by our charity for a period of three years.
