More About The Organisation

Organisation Description

About the Organisation

We believe in the many benefits that sport can offer visually impaired people, including improved health and mobility, broadening horizons, making new friends, and becoming more independent. We try to encourage as many blind and partially sighted children and adults as possible to participate in sport at all levels, from 'grassroots' to Paralympic representation. Answer phone available out of hours.

The work of the charity enables blind and partially sighted people to have the same opportunities as sighted people to access and enjoy sport and recreational activities in the UK.
