For nearly two centuries, the Royal Society for Blind Children (RSBC) has been supporting blind and partially sighted children, young people, and their families.
On the 1st January 2017, RSBC joined together with Royal London Society for Blind People (RLSB) to create the leading national charity for blind children in England and Wales. As a new charity, we are privileged to have the patronage of Her Majesty The Queen.
Together, we are successful
In 2015, our two constituent charities supported over 1600 participants through their combined services. We have a combined annual turnover of around £3.7 million and employ 100 people between us.
Together, we are ambitious
As a new, bigger RSBC, we aim to reach 11,000 blind and partially sighted children and young people in England and Wales by 2020.
Together, we are innovative
In 2015 we also collaborated with digital product studio ustwo to form Wayfindr, a social innovation organisation committed to improving independent travel for visually impaired people. This collaboration should help London to become one of the most accessible cities in the world, and could be available across the globe.
