How we make a difference

The Greater London Fund for the Blind (GLFB) raises vital funds to support a wide range of services – delivered at the local level by our member charities.

With around 200,000 people impacted by sight loss in London, the requests for specialist support assistance is growing. For many of these individuals, sight loss brings isolation, vulnerability and lack of independence.

The GLFB, together with our nine member charities are working to change this. Whether it is providing specialist support to a family with a blind child, employment skills training to a young adult or  social clubs for an isolated older person, our aim is to improve lives by helping individuals overcome many of the problems associated with sight loss.

Please consider making a donation to enable us to reach more blind and partially sighted people in need of support.


Great to have our first #contactless donation point now installed with Infocus Opticians Baker Street. Nadeem and the team are thrilled to have it! ... See MoreSee Less
