Living with sight loss
In this section
At RNIB, we believe in the power of technology to assist people with sight loss to be independent, access information, grasp opportunities and to be creative. We have lots of information to help you whether you are starting out or want more in depth help.
If you're blind or partially sighted, there are benefits and assistance available to make life easier. We can help you check what benefits, concessions and grants you could be entitled to. We also have tips on how to manage your finances independently.
<p data-block-key="g7te0">If you’re the parent of a child with vision impairments or a blind or partially sighted young person we have information and resources on education and learning to support you at every level.</p>
<p data-block-key="rpk3a">We can help you whether you're looking for employment or need support to stay in your job, if you are an employer with a colleague with sight loss or someone helping others to look for work. </p>
Find out how you can support friends, family and loved ones who have been diagnosed with sight loss. If you're a carer, parent or guardian, we have information on the benefits you could be eligible for and how you can access support.
Discover how the right equipment and support can help you live independently in your home. Sight loss doesn't mean you have to stop doing what you love, we can help you continue to enjoy leisure activities like reading and holidays.
Discover opportunities to connect and share experiences with other blind and partially sighted people. You can also find advice on how to look after your wellbeing.
The RNIB 'series' guides are designed to provide you with the information and support you need to face the future with confidence.
