Help us reach the people who need us most

In the next 15 minutes someone in the UK will start losing their sight. Who would you turn to if it was you? 

Imagine being told you're going blind. You're worried you won't see your kids again, you're scared you'll lose your job, you have food shopping to do, but you're too frightened to even leave the house. You feel alone and need someone to talk to, but what if there's no one there... 

If you lost your sight who would you turn to?

A sight loss adviser can provide one-to-one practical and emotional support for people who are newly diagnosed, or in the early stages of sight loss. But sadly, fewer than one in 10 people are offered this help. Donate now and you can help us to be there for the people who need us most.

100 people in the UK will start to lose their sight today. It will change their life completely 

Without warning Liz lost her sight watching TV one evening due to a haemorrhage. She was scared and left alone to cope. But Liz's story isn't uncommon. There are thousands of people who need immediate support as they come to terms with going blind and get their independence back. 

You can change a life

Even a small donation could ensure more sight loss advisers are trained to support people from the moment they're diagnosed. As little as £2 a month enables a sight loss adviser to call a housebound person and answer vital questions, while £100 will pay for four sessions with an adviser to help make daily life more manageable. No one should face sight loss alone, please take a moment to donate so we can be there for everyone facing a life without sight.
