After seven years of collaboration, Action for Blind People and RNIB have joined together as one charity under the RNIB name. We are reshaping RNIB in response to what our customers have told us they need and want from us.
This means all our activities from April 2017 will start to be delivered under the RNIB brand. This will allow us to help more blind and partially sighted people by combining our services, knowledge and expertise within one charity. Action’s vital work will continue through RNIB.
Wherever you may find yourself in the wide world of sight loss - whether you have just been diagnosed, have just been registered with a visual impairment or are finding coping with an existing or degenerative eye condition has become more of a challenge - We are here for you. Our services are designed to enable you to make the right choices to enjoy living independently.
