What is RNIB Connect?

RNIB Connect is a growing community that brings together blind and partially sighted people, their families, friends and carers. Best of all, it’s free to join. Meet others with similar experiences, share information and bring people together in our helpful, welcoming and supportive community.

Want to be the first to receive the newest stories? Sign up to RNIB Connect to receive free communications in the format of your choice. It’s up to you what you subscribe to, and you can change your preferences at any time by contacting the Connect team. 


In your discussions you can chat about any ideas and issues that are important in your Connect community. You may have a sight problem yourself, know someone who does, be a carer or support worker, discussions are open to all.

Please read the guidelines for using our discussions to make sure this is a welcoming, friendly and enjoyable place for everyone to use. If you have feedback or technical issues, your Connect team are happy to help – phone 0303 1234 555 or email [email protected].
