Founded in 1793, Royal Blind is a national charity providing education, care and employment for blind and visually impaired people throughout their lifetime.We provide education and care for children with services like Kidscene, the Royal Blind School, and all the way through to care for older people at Braeside House. But one crucial life stage we also have covered is support and care for young adults.
