Vital funds to support those with sight loss in Greater London
The Greater London Fund for the Blind (GLFB) raises vital funds to support a wide range of services – delivered at the local level by GLFB’s network of partners.
With more than 200,000 people living with sight loss in London, the need for specialist support assistance is growing. For many, sight loss brings isolation, vulnerability and a lack of independence.
The Greater London Fund for the Blind works to change this. Whether it is providing specialist support to a family with a blind child, employment skills training to a young adult or social clubs for an isolated older person, GLFB’s aim is to help people overcome many of the problems associated with sight loss and empower blind and partially sighted people to live full and independent lives.
