How your money helps

When you lose your sight, you can lose more than your ability to see.With the kind and generous donations from our supporters, we can reach more blind and sighted people that need our help.

Currently we can only reach one in three blind and partially sighted people in the UK. With your support, it doesn’t have to be like this.

Here are just a few of the ways that your donation could help make every day better for blind and partially sighted people:

£5 could help someone to claim more than £100 of financial support they are entitled to every single year

£12 means that there can be someone in an eye clinic to listen, someone to support, and someone to be there when people are told they could lose their sight

£30 could make sure that someone knows what support is available in every aspect of their lives, with our full Quality of Life check

£55 could help someone with sight-saving advice and support with just one phone call to our Eye Health Team

£75 can offer advice, a listening ear, understanding, and friendship with one of our weekly Talk and Support telephone groups

£100 means that anyone affected by sight loss can just pick up the phone to get the answers they need from our expert Advice Team

£250 means that more people can access specialist literature in their surgeries and eye clinics, to help them understand their eye condition better

£500 could pay for someone at a desperate time in their life to have six sessions of one to one professional counselling

£1,000 could provide a whole week of dedicated support at an eye clinic, helping people to understand and live with their sight loss

£2,500 could help make the latest novel available to our Talking Book Library members in a format they can use at home

£8,000 could pay for more than 100 sessions of professional emotional support for people in a time of crisis

£12,500 means that 160 people affected by sight loss can get the answers they need about their eye health to look after their sight and manage their condition better

How to donate

You can help us reach more people by setting up a direct debit or giving a one off donation either online, by phone or by post. A third of our vital work helping people with sight loss is only possible thanks to people continuing their support through a legacy gift. Find out how you can leave us a gift in your Will. You can also dedicate your donation to the memory of someone special, donate in memory online.

Thank you for your support.
