We help children and young people with sight loss and visual impairment reach their full potential.
What we do
We provide a specialist clinical psychology service for children and young people with sight loss and visual impairment to help manage their mental health and eye conditions in everyday life.
Our professional clinical psychologists work one-to-one with children, young people, parents and carers who have been referred by participating hospital eye clinics. Psychologists will liaise with schools and engage agencies as needed.
Our service is unconditional, confidential and free.
Why we do it
Our founding trustees know from personal experience of raising children with sight loss the impact it has on the lives of children, young people, their families and the community.
We understand the importance of obtaining help from specialist clinical psychologists to improve home life, educational attainment, job prospects, societal engagement and mental health.
We use the results of this work to drive our other projects including research, teaching, liaison with other charities including the RNIB and Guide Dogs for the Blind Association, local charities, local government departments, which are local to participating eye clinics.
Fight Against Blindness was founded and registered with the Charity Commission in 2008. All trustees including the chairman are unpaid.
