Supporting blind emergency service personnel

Blind Veterans UK helps emergency service personnel who are injured on duty to adapt to sight loss
Blind Veterans UK helps emergency service personnel injured on duty to adapt to sight loss.

We also manage the Diana Gubbay Trust, which helps support men and women who have served in the emergency services and suffered severe sight loss while on duty. To qualify for this help you need to have suffered severe loss of vision while on duty in the emergency services (police, fire and ambulance) and meet the same sight loss criteria as those for joining Blind Veterans UK.

How to apply for Blind Veterans UK's support

For someone to be entitled to Blind Veterans UK's free support and services, they need to have done National Service or served in the Armed Forces, and have significant sight loss.

It doesn't matter to us why someone's vision is impaired or when they lost their sight. Many of our veterans have lost their sight years after their service, due to age or illness.

We believe that no one who has served their country should have to battle blindness alone.
