Your support matters

Your company can help us transform blind veterans' lives

We currently support over 4,500 veterans and we will continue to do so for the rest of their lives. Plus, there are 50,000 more vision-impaired veterans across the UK who still need our support. You can help us reach them. 

Whether they need rehabilitation, devices to keep them connected to family and friends, or adaptations to their home, we provide the support that blind veterans need to live independent and fulfilling lives.

Help veterans like Mark regain their independence 

Mark was a sergeant in the Royal Corps of Signals and worked as an electronics engineer. He joined the Army in 1984 but his career ended in 1999 when he lost his sight in an accident. 

Mark, from Saltdean, East Sussex, has been receiving free, continued support from Blind Veterans UK for nearly 20 years. The technology and training we provide help Mark to live independently.

"I love using the different gadgets and they make a real difference in helping me live independently. Ultimately, the technology and training the charity has provided has given me the confidence to live my life, which is priceless."
