British Wireless for the Blind (SL)

British Wireless for the Blind Fund has been providing specially adapted radios to visually impaired
people for more than 80 years. We pride ourselves on providing a personal service to each
individual who receives a new set. For people with sight loss, life becomes a challenge; not just the
difficulty of getting out and about, but also the everyday tasks that we take for granted - like turning
on the radio in the morning to listen to the news. British Wireless for the Blind Fund exists to help
improve the daily lives of visually impaired people, who are unable to afford a specially adapted
radio, by providing the equipment on free loan.
