  • Mission

    At the Royal Society for Blind Children, we believe no child in the UK should grow up to be poor or lonely just because they are blind. We create a better life for blind children, by helping every young person we work with to find and fulfil their own unique potential.
  • Brief history

    RSBC was founded as The London School for Teaching the Blind to Read in 1838 by Thomas Lucas who invented a typeface similar to braille enabling blind children to finger read. Today the charity provides a range of activities to build children's independence and resilience and help them make friends.
