Families and carers

We offer practical help, giving each blind veteran the skills and confidence to pick up their life, and become independent again. We are there when families cannot cope and we stay with them through good and bad times.

Blind Veterans UK is a community for life.

If you care for someone who served their country and has lost their sight, please get in touch with us.
