Action for Blind People

About us

Action for Blind People is a national charity with local reach, providing practical help and support to blind and partially sighted people of all ages.

We listen, we understand, we act

Action speaks louder for nearly 30,000 visually impaired people every year, always placing their needs first. We support these individuals in many aspects of their lives and help them to find the right services and products they need to live independently.

Working in collaboration

Action works with other expert organisations to draw on a wide range of skills and resources. Our close relationship with RNIB enables us to provide a unique combination of complementary strengths and expertise to help an ever increasing number of people with sight loss.

As an organisation we support RNIB Group strategy and the UK Vision Strategy.

The work we do

We offer visually impaired people a number of services, including help with finding a job, applying for benefits, housing issues, aids and adaptations, holiday breaks and information on local services.
