Every day, 250 people in the UK start to lose their sight. It is vital that they don’t face this journey alone.

By supporting the RNIB Still Me campaign, you can enable more people who have received a sight loss diagnosis get the help they need to navigate this difficult journey and talk to people who are in a position to understand what they are going through.

Perm was 35 when she received her sight loss diagnosis and struggled to accept her situation for years. After feeling like there was no way forward, Perm was able to start feeling like herself again with the help of RNIB’s counselling service.

“I hit rock bottom and had to do something… when I picked up the phone, somebody on the other end said 'we're here to help' and that's all I needed. They helped me realise that I’m still me."
