  • 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 help young people live beyond their sight loss, 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.
