No longer being able to read your favourite author or missing out on the local news from your community can be a big loss. Luckily for many blind and partially sighted people talking books and newspapers provide an auditory alternative to the written word.
Your donations have helped fund many projects over the years to give people greater access to news and books and helped produce a diverse range of publications.
In the last year we have provided a grant to Talking News Islington to help them expand and grow their free services to 106 people in and around Islington.
Your gifts also contributed to National Talking Newspapers and helped increase the number of subscribers who can receive 250 recorded publications which are despatched in tape, CD or on memory sticks.
