NCBI - Working for People with Sight Loss

NCBI is a not for profit charitable organisation which offers support and services nationwide to people experiencing difficulties with their eyesight. About 18 per cent of people using NCBI’s services are completely blind, while 82 per cent have varying degrees of usable vision. Established in 1931 to promote the full independence of people who are blind or vision impaired, NCBI now provides a range of services to over 11,000 people, the majority of whom are aged over 50 years of age. NCBI also provides a range of services to public and private organisations so that their services are accessible to people who are blind and vision impaired. We have over 150 staff who deliver our services and are supported by a team of dedicated volunteers throughout the country. Our vision is for people who are blind of vision impaired to have the same opportunities, rights and choices as other to fully participate in society.
