Vision Foundation

Let's talk about mental health

Only 17% of people experiencing sight loss are offered 
emotional support in relation to their deteriorating vision.

Our collaboration with Shout offers a free, 24/7 text service for blind and partially sighted people to speak about how they are feeling and receive support in finding next steps.

We believe in a future where people living with sight loss are equal citizens and preventable blindness is a thing of the past.

Through breakthrough research and life-changing services, we will build a better world for blind and partially sighted people.
