How does your fundraising help?

Every day 250 people are told their losing their sight. However, right now many people receive no support at all when they’re given this news. We want to change that.

We’re on a mission to make sure every UK hospital has a dedicated Sight Loss Advisor. Your fundraising will help us be there when people need us most, as we grow our network of expert advisors and reach everyone who needs our emotional and practical support.
