Get Involved in National Braille Week


Hold a school assembly, organise an event or join our social media campaigns. We held a special assembly at the Royal Blind School today (Monday 7th October 2019) where pupils told us how braille had changed their lives.

National Braille Week is an opportunity for individuals, organisations and schools across the country to get involved in promoting Braille. Please get involved and spread the word! If you are planning to organise your own activity let us know by completing the form below.


Social Media

Support our social media campaign! During National Braille Week share photos of Braille that you see in your daily lives - on menus, medicine packets, trains, bathrooms. We also share lots of interesting facts, resources and of course content from what you have been up to to celebrate Braille! Tweet using the hashtags #NationalBrailleWeek or #NBW20

Follow @royalblind on Twitter and Facebook



Schools and community groups such as Brownies and Scouts can have a "brailliant" time using our online resources to learn about Braille. We have power points, apps, videos and games. Browse our resources section.



Organise your own event at your workplace to celebrate National Braille Week. Use our free resources to get involved!


Spot the Dot Gallery

Spot the Dot Gallery

On this page we are building a gallery of images to show the many, many different ways Braille can be useful in everyday life - and we need your help to fill it!
So if you 'spot the dot' anywhere around town, then take a snap and tweet it with #spotthedot - or send it to us at

The aim is to show that Braille is not just used in books - it has many everyday uses which can empower people with visual impairment to get on with life independently.
