About National Braille Week

National Braille Week is a celebration of braille and other alternative formats that is run by the charity Royal Blind. It takes place in October during the week that World Sight Day falls. 

National Braille Week is your week - we invite you to get involved, organise your own event, hold a school assembly about braille or get involved in our social media campaigns to help spread the word. 

Over the years many celebrities have supported National Braille Week to help raise awareness and engage the public.
