British Wireless for the Blind Fund


British Wireless for the Blind provides specially designed radios (including DAB radios) and CD / cassette recorders to registered blind people in need over the age of eight and resident in the United Kingdom.

For people with sight loss, life becomes a challenge; not just the difficulty of getting out and about, but also the everyday tasks that we take for granted - like turning on the radio in the morning to listen to the news.

By providing the equipment on a free loan to those who are unable to afford a specially adapted radio we help improve the daily lives of visually impaired people.

We are a small team of 17 staff based at our head office in Maidstone, Kent as well as four regional development managers. We have a fantastic team of over 70 volunteers who work to support us and those in need.

We work alongside a network of local agents, including blind societies and local authority sensory teams to enable us to provide our service all throughout the UK.
