Keira smiles holding a braille letter from Santa

Santa is busy working with the elves at RNIB to make sure all visually impaired children can receive a festive letter this Christmas. 

Our magical Letter from Santa scheme helps Santa to send his letters in the child’s preferred reading format, whether that be braille, audio or large print.

Last year, we helped Santa send almost 1,500 accessible letters, which brought smiles to little faces all over the UK!

The deadline for requesting braille, audio and large print letters from Santa has now passed. However, there’s still time to request a letter from Santa to be emailed to a blind or partially sighted child. All emails are sent with a 16pt letter attached.

Please email [email protected] by 22 December 2021.

If you don’t need an accessible format, you can still request a letter from Santa as part of our brand new Elf Academy!

Santa has kindly agreed to help with the Elf Academy too, so everyone who is signed up before 15 December will receive a personalised letter from Santa (standard print) and an Elf Academy Certificate in time for Christmas. Grown-ups will also get access to the Elf Activity Hub, full of Christmassy ideas for fun and accessible activities to do in the run up to the big day.
