RNIB Resource Centres

RNIB Resource Centre’s give people the opportunity to view, try and buy from RNIB’s extensive range of products, all designed to support you to live independently whether you're blind, partially sighted or live with any degree of sight loss.

Our dedicated teams of experts in the Resource Centres are here to advise you on our products. They can provide guidance and instructions for use and set up many items so they're ready to use when you get home.

Product range

All products for sale in the Resource Centre are especially designed to assist you if you’re blind or partially sighted. Many everyday living tasks can be made more accessible - tasks that many people take for granted, such as:

  • Reading
  • Cooking
  • Using a computer
  • Making a phone call, or
  • Just getting out and about.

We also hold a range of information about the services we offer and those more locally to you. We will be happy to talk through what may be of interest.
