Blind Veterans UK is the national charity for ex-Service men and women with severe sight loss. Founded in 1915 and previously known as St Dunstan's, Blind Veterans UK provides ex-Service men and women with the free tailored support they need to discover life beyond sight loss.

Blind Veterans UK

We provide lifelong support to veterans no matter when they served or how they lost their sight. Our beneficiaries range from National Service veterans who lost their sight later in life due to age-related conditions, to Iraq and Afghanistan veterans blinded on duty.

Blind Veterans UK gives veterans the rehabilitation, training and support they need to lead full independent lives.

  • From providing talking watches to adapting houses for safe and comfortable living we provide the tools blind veterans need to be independent in their own homes.
  • We help veterans deal with sight loss and relearn life skills such as reading, travelling via public transport and using a computer.
  • We enable blind veterans to try new hobbies, whether in cooking, creative writing, art and crafts, or sports.
  • We run activities and events such as lunches, reunions and clubs, which gives our veterans the opportunity to be part of a community with a shared experience. You're not alone if you're supported by Blind Veterans UK.
  • Blind Veterans UK also has two training and rehabilitation centres in Brighton and Llandudno which provide training, residential and respite care, and recreational activities.
