About Blind Veterans UK

Blind Veterans UK (formerly St Dunstans)

Founded in 1915 by Sir Arthur Pearson, (Owner of the Evening Standard and founder of the Daily Express) to to help those who had lost their vision in the First World War by giving them the care and rehabilitation they needed to lead constructive, self-sufficient lives. Nearly a century later, Blind Veterans UK not only cares for ex-Service men and women blinded in action, but for veterans who have lost their sight through accident, illness or old age. They have three centres (in Brighton, Llandudno and Sheffield) that provide residential and respite care plus sports facilities, as well as qualified welfare staff who support blind veterans across the UK to live independently within their own communities.

Blind Veterans UK provides free support and services to Armed Forces and National Service veterans suffering with severe sight loss. If you or someone you know served and is experiencing sight problems, request free support by visiting www.noonealone.org.uk or freephone 0800 389 7979.
