Connect Voices is your way to get involved in RNIB's work, helping shape what we do.
At RNIB we have a set of values we work to, the most important is being led by blind and partially sighted people.
Join our Facebook group and get involved from the comfort of your own home. You can also sign up for RNIB's news update on email where key opportunities are mentioned.
There are new opportunities every day, and you can take part in as little or as much as you want. If you’re not online, you can get involved in many other ways, including listening to the latest updates on RNIB Connect Radio.
You can work with us on short and long term projects, take part in surveys, help us test our products and services and influence some key RNIB publications.
Whether it's completing a short survey, taking part in a quick poll or sharing your views in an online discussion, you can choose how involved you want to be. Some of the Connect Voices opportunities include:
Co-designing services, projects and events alongside staff
Taking part in quick polls and surveys
Joining local action groups to improve services and support for people with sight loss in your area
Joining our Customer Involvement Advisory Group to help review topics of strategic interest

RNIB’s Annual Involvement Report showcases how blind and partially sighted people from across the UK have influenced ped our work and research over the last year, despite the challenges of the coronavirus pandemic. From working with Kellogg’s and NaviLens in making food packaging more accessible, to developing guidance on the use of face coverings, the involvement of blind and partially sighted people is fundamental to RNIB’s work.
