About the organisation

Royal Society for Blind Children (RSBC)

We create a better life for blind children, by helping every young person we work with to find and fulfil their own unique potential. We are there for them from the moment they are told they have lost their sight, guiding them and their families on their journey through sight loss. We provide them with a combination of support, learning and development opportunities to help them develop the resilience and skills they will need to navigate their own futures.
