British Wireless for the Blind Fund
Can you imagine not being able to read a newspaper, book, or a magazine? Think how lonely you would be having lost the confidence to venture out and without the television to watch. Many visually impaired people experience isolation like this every day.
For 90 years, British Wireless for the Blind Fund has been the only charity providing specially adapted radios to blind and partially sighted people across the UK. For those who would not otherwise be able to afford this type of equipment, they offer a range of devices on free loan for as long as the recipients need the support.
A radio not only provides companionship with a comforting voice in the room, it also helps people feel connected to the world around them with news, entertainment and sport. In fact 2 Premier league football giants now provide accessible free live commentary to our listeners.
To be eligible to receive a device on free loan you need to be a resident in the UK who is registered blind or partially sighted, over the age of eight and in receipt of an income related benefit.
