Welcome from the Chair

RNIB is changing

A movement of people living with sight loss is forming; standing together to be seen and have their voices heard.

We work alongside a diverse community of 30,000 people living with sight loss, directly support over 100,000 customers, and our messages reach millions of people who are at risk of developing a sight condition.

RNIB provides expert eye health and sight loss information and advice and acts as a gateway to services and support provided by ourselves and others. We campaign, help people advocate for their own rights, and enable people with sight loss, their friends and families, to support each other and change lives for the better.

Working with our supporters and partners, we're changing wider society to create a world where eye health is prioritised, sight loss isn't a barrier and everyone can live their life with confidence.

We've embarked on a series of important changes to how we're set up, how we work and how we involve people in what we do, growing a range of new partnerships that make the best of what's national and local.

New ways of working are bringing RNIB closer to the people who need us, increasing the opportunities for everyone to give and receive support.

At RNIB, we're excited and ambitious for the future. We're fighting to make sure tomorrow is something to look forward to.

If you'd like to be part of our story we'd love to hear from you.

About RNIB

Founded in October 1868, The Royal National Institute of Blind People (RNIB) is here to support everyone affected by sight loss. Whether our customers are losing their sight, or blind or partially sighted, our practical and emotional support can help people to face the future with confidence.

Our ambition is to make every day better for everyone affected by sight loss: by being there when you’re losing your sight, supporting independent living, creating a more inclusive society and preventing avoidable sight loss.

We’re a charity, proud to be led by a strong and active community of 30,000 blind and partially sighted people, who along with our trustees give direction to our work.

Together we make daily life better for people affected by sight loss, by being there when people need us. We raise awareness of sight problems, and how to prevent sight loss and keep your eyes healthy, and we campaign for better services and a more inclusive society.

We understand how important it is to live with confidence. Whether you need advice on keeping your job, technology to help you do everyday tasks or tips on how to keep doing the hobbies you love, we can help.

Our work includes:

  • campaigning on a range of issues from preventing sight loss through to better transport services for blind and partially sighted people
  • supporting others through a range of products and services
  • offering training, education and learning
  • employment and education services
  • promoting accessible services.
