Organisation Name
British Wireless For The Blind Fund
Description

The British Wireless for the Blind Fund provides high quality, easy to use audio equipment which has been specially designed and adapted for listeners living with sight loss.

All our radios are made available on Free Loan to Blind and Partially Sighted people who meet our criteria. If you don't qualify, our radios are also available to purchase through BWBF Direct.

Our Agents help and support us to provide this service throughout the UK and Northern Ireland. Agents include organisations i.e. local Blind Associations, Societies, Libraries, Social Services, etc.

Agents perform full assessments to establish that recipients are eligible to receive a set on a free loan basis. They ensure the listening needs of each individual are considered and that the appropriate set is identified to best meet the recipient’s needs. They deliver the equipment to the recipient and provide instruction and training in its operation.

You can search for your nearest agent on our website or contact us for further information.
