Blind Veterans UK


Blind Veterans UK is excited to be the official charity for Race the Train 2019 and we would be delighted to assist you in using your participation in this fantastic challenge to raise funds to support our work with blind veterans across the UK.

Blind Veterans UK believes that no one who has served our country should battle blindness alone.

We strive to ensure blind veterans are able to rebuild their lives after sight loss via the provision of equipment, support,

 rehabilitation and training in areas such as independent living skills, mobility, arts, sports and health and well being both within our centres and via our community teams across the UK. Find out more about the support we give here.

Founded in 1915 to support the 3,000 veterans blinded by the First World War our organisation noRTimage1w supports blind veterans regardless of how or when they lost their sight.  Today we support 4,700 ex-servicemen and women and aim to reach another 50,000 who are eligible for our help.

Meet our veterans to learn more about the impact of our work here.

Blind Veterans UK depends on our supporters generosity to ensure we are able to help our blind veterans achieve Victory Over Blindness – that is to lead the lives they choice in-spite of their sight loss.
