A grant award is made to assist people on low incomes.

BlindAid may make grants available to help blind and partially sighted people maintain independence and reduce isolation (subject to criteria and typically up to £300).

Grant applications should be made on behalf of the recipient by Social Services, Sensory Teams or other Charities.

All applications will be considered by our grant committee.

The following are some examples of how grants have been used:

  • Equipment and gadgets: including talking clocks, big button phones, colour detectors, talking mobile phones, talking microwaves
  • Contribution towards computer equipment
  • Domestic items

Please note that as of January 2013 we no longer offer grants towards holidays
