Give a gift today to help more blind and partially sighted young people like Sam see possibilities not barriers!

For many people sight loss can be scary, lonely and isolating. Everyday activities become increasingly difficult, sometimes impossible, from getting around to making a cup of tea or cooking a meal.

Please give a gift today to help more young people get the right support

Sam, age 21, began a flexible placement with the Royal Blind School when her sight began to deteriorate after being diagnosed with cerebral visual impairment (CVI) at birth.

With the right support from us, Sam is now a Blind Athlete with ambitions to take part in the Paralympic Games.
