Blind Veterans

We know that sight loss affects the whole family, so as well as helping veterans to get back on their feet, we offer support to carers and families. We provide what a veteran and their family need to help them discover life after sight loss.

A carer is anyone who looks after a friend or family member and isn’t paid for their help. We know that carers are typically spouses and children of veterans experiencing sight loss. Becoming a carer to someone with a vision-impairment can be a sudden process or it can slowly happen over time as a partner loses their sight due to aging.

Coping with sight loss can be hard for everyone involved, whether that’s the person with sight loss or their carer.

If you care for a blind or vision impaired ex-Service man or woman, Blind Veterans UK is here to help you through:
  • Tailored advice and support from Blind Veterans UK’s experienced and qualified community support workers
  • Addressing the emotional and practical aspects of caring through sessions at our introduction weeks at our centres in Brighton and Llandudno, North Wales
  • Respite for veterans to give family members and carers a well-earned break
  • Signposting to other support services
  • Providing opportunities to attend social events, carer sessions and meet other carers who are in the same boat
