Veterans' Stories

Read our blind veterans' stories to see how we have helped them and their families discover a life beyond sight loss, and regain their independence.

We have also included the stories of some of our welfare officers so you can read about their experiences of being part of the Blind Veterans UK team.

When someone loses their sight - through injury or illness, young or old - it can be devastating for them. But our veterans and their families are proof that they can enjoy life after sight loss.

We give practical support, training, rehabilitation and equipment to help blind veterans regain their independence and live full lives.

Our welfare support and advice means that veterans and their families are always supported.

Even more importantly, we are a community with a shared experience.

You are not alone.
