We know the positive impact sport can have on people’s lives and that people with sight loss participate and excel in sport and physical activity at all levels. But we also know there’s work to do, as many people with sight loss are unable to access and therefore enjoy sport.
We're working with British Blind Sport (BBS) to raise awareness among the two million people with sight loss in the UK, and across the sports sector, about how more blind and partially sighted people can get involved with sport and feel the benefits.
How to get involved
Whether you’d like to try a new activity, join a club or workout at home, there’s lots of ways to get active and stay active.
Alongside the sports sector, BBS has developed a range of tools to help you find the right activity for you.
RNIB and BBS are working together to raise awareness of these different ways to get involved in sport and physical activity. Find out more.

RNIB is looking for people with sight loss to champion the work of it’s See Sport Differently programme.
We are looking for people who take part in local sport or physical activity who would be happy to share their experiences with other blind and partially sighted people. We’d love you to be able to offer informal peer support and encouragement to others who are taking those first steps to get active.
See Sport Differently is a new Sport England initiative
We want to break down barriers in sport to increase opportunities for blind and partially sighted people to participate in physical activity and experience truly inclusive sport in lots of different ways.
Blind and partially sighted people are involved in all kinds of sports, from football and cricket to guide running and goalball.
Watch our campaign film and see our sporting stars in action for some inspiration.
Over the next three years, we want to increase the opportunities for blind and partially sighted people to participate in sport and improve knowledge of sight loss across the sports sector and workforce, as well as enhance accessibility across sport venues, broadcast coverage and sporting products.
As more people get involved and opportunities arise, blind and partially sighted people will be shaping the development of this programme so we will keep you updated as our plans evolve.
