Every day another 100 people will start to lose their sight. If you or someone you know has just lost their sight, the RNIB can help.

There are around two million people in the UK with sight problems and RNIB (Royal National Institute of the Blind) is the leading charity offering practical support and advice to anyone with a sight problem. Our pioneering work helps – not just with braille, Talking Books and computer training but with imaginative and practical solutions to everyday challenges. We rely on the generosity of our supporters to provide our services.

If you have just been diagnosed with a sight problem, we can help. RNIB Helpline provides information and support for anyone with a sight problem and is a gateway to our specialist services. Our expert staff handle around 40,000 enquiries every year as the first stop for a range of information including eye health and welfare rights.

Our innovative Talk and Support services provide a range of opportunities for people with sight problems to socialise, share information and support each other over the telephone – from the comfort of their own homes.
