Blind Veterans UK

Description:

Blind Veterans UK help blind ex-Service men and women lead independent and fulfilling lives by supporting them with in-depth expertise, experience and a full range of services.

The organisation helps with lifelong practical and emotional support which is provided to Armed Forces and National Service veterans regardless of when they served or how they lost their sight.

They help veterans recover their independence and discover a life beyond sight loss, by providing vision impaired Armed Forces and National Service veterans with the person-centred services and tailored support they need.

Blind Veterans UK's work ranges from helping veterans relearn vital life skills and providing them with the tools they need to be independent in their own homes, to offering new learning, training and recreation opportunities and providing long-term nursing, residential and respite care.

Blind Veterans UK not only cares for ex-Service men and women blinded in action, but for veterans who have lost their sight through accident, illness or old age.  They have three centres (in Brighton, Llandudno and Sheffield) that provide residential and respite care plus sports facilities, as well as qualified welfare staff who help blind veterans across the UK to live independently within their own communitie
