Why Choose Us?

Experienced staff

Royal Blind has a wealth of experience in supporting people with vision impairment, including those with additional disabilities. Several of our staff in our adults services have previously worked at the Royal Blind School, which provides education and care to children and young people with visual impairment and complex needs.

Skills and support

We offer opportunities to learn new life skills as well as enhancing the interests adults have already learned at home, school and previous care settings. 

We support adults to make new and keep existing friends and mix with their peer group. We encourage them to explore personal interests and promote:

• confidence through supporting independence
• enhancement of communication skills
• mobility skills
• personal development and social skills.
