Llandudno is our newest centre, which opened in autumn 2011. Overlooking the North Wales resort town with its iconic promenade, pier and the Great Orme, it is accessible to veterans who would have a long journey to Sheffield or Brighton.


Blind veterans can come to Llandudno for their first visit and assessment. During their introductory week we carefully assess each person's vision impairment, and speak to them and their families about how we can help through training and rehabilitation.

After this visit, veterans can come back to Llandudno for holidays, respite, and nursing care. As well as helping with fitness and mobility, we give veterans with sight loss the skills they need to live an independent life.
Centre facilities


Our Llandudno centre has a variety of lounges, a bar, outdoor terrace, a fully equipped gym, a sports and activity hall, and an art and craft workshop.


We also have 40 en-suite bedrooms, both single and double, for short-term visitors and 14 care rooms.

 

Why Llandudno?

 

We spent several years looking for the right building for our third centre - somewhere that was easily reachable for people in the west of the UK and which we could adapt properly for our veterans. We needed a large building with enough space for residential rooms and facilities, and extensive grounds where we could build safe pathways for blind veterans.


Built in 1902 by the Forrester family as a convalescence home for shale miners, this magnificent building fitted the bill perfectly. It's our newest centre: a fantastic addition that we've renovated and meticulously refurbished to best meet the veterans' needs.
