We are a membership organisation with over 10,000 members who are blind, partially sighted or the friends and family of people with sight loss. 80 per cent of our Trustees are blind or partially sighted.
We encourage members to be involved in our work and regularly consult with them on government policy and their ideas for change.
As a campaigning organisation of blind and partially sighted people, we fight for the rights of people with sight loss in each of the UK’s countries.
Our priorities are to:
RNIB is a provider of CQC regulated social care services which include: care homes for older people with sight loss; care homes and supported living for people with sight loss and learning disabilities; and a national specialist college with residential care and support provision for younger adults with learning disabilities.
As such, we have first hand experience of the care regulation and inspection regime and are uniquely placed to advise on the nature and impact of sight loss in social care and support settings.
Our aim is to influence the wider systems of care and support through the experience and knowledge gained from our own provision of exemplary services.
We also provide expert knowledge to business and the public sector through consultancy on improving the accessibility of the built environment, technology, products and services.
