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 us to be there for a blind or partially sighted person when they contact our Helpline.

£10 could cover the cost of 100 blind and partially sighted people tuning into RNIB Connect Radio, run by and for people with sight loss to promote independence and reduce social isolation. 

£15 could provide free Talking Books to someone for a month, so that they can relax with a great read.

£20 could help someone feel more confident about living with sight loss, with personalised support on a topic like reading, technology or their eye condition from our expert Advice Service.

£50 could help someone feel more positive about the future after losing their sight, through a one-to-one phone or online counselling session.

£55 could help someone understand their eye condition, the treatment options and what it means for their life, through a series of in-depth, personalised advice and support sessions from our Eye Health Information Service.

£80 could provide free Talking Books to someone for 6 months, giving them the chance to relax with a great read from our Library.

£83 could help us to reach out to blind and partially sighted people in their homes for an hour through our RNIB Connect Radio station, run by and for people with sight loss.

£100 could help us to be there for 20 blind or partially sighted people when they contact our Helpline.

£160 could provide free Talking Books to someone for a year, so that they can relax with a great read.

£375 could help someone feel more positive about the future after losing their sight, through eight one-to-one counselling sessions over the phone or online.

£532 could run our Helpline for one hour, so that blind and partially sighted people can contact us with any questions they might have.

£1,500 could make a new children’s book available in our Talking Books library.
