About Us

Launched in 1928 we have been providing radios to people living with sight loss for 95 years. We pride ourselves on providing a personal service to each individual who receives a new set.

For people with sight loss, life can become a challenge; not just the difficulty of getting out and about, but also the everyday tasks that we take for granted - like turning on the radio in the morning to listen to the news.

By providing the equipment on a free loan to those who are unable to afford a specially adapted radio we help improve the daily lives of visually impaired people.

We are a small team of 13 staff based at our head office in Maidstone, Kent as well as three regional development managers. We have a fantastic team of over 40 volunteers who work to support us and those in need.

We work alongside a network of local agents, including societies for people living with sight loss and local authority sensory teams to enable us to provide our service all throughout the UK.
