Who we are
We were formed nearly 150 years ago but the ethos of our organisation remains much the same as it was when were formed which is to help visually impaired people to be and stay independent through information and learning activities , keeping in touch with people services, social groups and empowerment work.
We are a completely independent local society proudly serving over 1,000 visually impaired people in Newcastle. We have no financial connection with the RNIB , Henshaws, Action for Blind People , the Macular Society or any other national organisation . We do however work closely in partnership with these and other organisations.
Our website is quite limited and we are working towards an upgrade in 2017 . We apologise if you may experience some difficulties in using the site with screen readers in the meantime.
