BlindAid has over 175 years of experience of delivering emotional and practical support to blind and visually impaired people living in the 12 inner London Boroughs and the City of London.
Our enthusiastic team is dedicated to working alongside our Service Users offering friendly company and conversation as well as information and links to other useful organisations. We aim to improve quality of life and to promote independence.
All our services are provided free of charge for our Service Users.
Our core service is Home Visiting; we also provide a Telephone Support Service and can offer Welfare Rights support for our Service Users. We are able to provide the long term loan of radio/audio equipment and may offer grants to support independent living.
In January 2014, BlindAid launched our first Tri-Borough Community project, providing free classes in IT, art & craft, cooking & healthy eating and yoga for blind and visually impaired residents of Southwark, Lambeth and Lewisham. This project is based in the Southwark Resource Centre. We also opened another Community Project in Kensington & Chelsea in late 2015, providing free classes in IT, exercise & body movement, art & craft and cooking & healthy eating. These classes are based at Action Disability Kensington & Chelsea and the neighbouring Latymer road centre.
We can provide support in the following Boroughs:
- Hammersmith & Fulham
- Islington & The City
