Supporting and promoting our campaigns
RNIB (Royal National Institute of Blind People) is the UK's leading charity offering information, support and advice to almost two million people with sight loss. As a membership organisation we are dedicated to delivering services our members need and campaigning for their civil and welfare rights. We support children and adults with sight loss to live full and independent lives. Volunteers work with us to support blind and partially sighted people in a variety of locations across the UK. We have over 100 different volunteering roles available which can be done from home, based at an RNIB Group office or out and about in the community. Volunteering with us means that you will help even more blind and partially sighted people lead full and independent lives.
