Who we are

We're Blind Veterans UK (formerly St Dunstan's) and we believe that no one who's served our country should battle blindness alone. That's why we're here to help with a lifetime's practical and emotional support, regardless of when people served or how they lost their sight. We get our members back on their feet, recovering their independence and discovering a life beyond sight loss.

How we help

We help blind ex-Service men and women lead independent and fulfilling lives by supporting them with our expertise, experience and full range of services. We give veterans much-needed support to adjust to sight loss, overcome the challenges of blindness and enjoy daily life. Our charity has been offering physical and emotional support to vision impaired members of our military since 1915.

How you can help

We depend on our supporters' generosity for the work we do for blind ex-Service men and women. Whether you give a few pounds or a few hours of your time, it all helps us do our crucial work to help veterans live independently with sight loss. There are many ways to support Blind Veterans UK, one way is to set up a Blind Veterans UK Tribute Fund for a lost loved one.

Remembering your loved one

When the Fund reaches £500 the name of your loved one and a special message can be inscribed into our Book of Remembrance on display at our centre in Brighton.

When the Fund reaches £1,500 an engraved memorial paviour can be laid in our walkway at the National Memorial Arboretum in Alrewas, Staffordshire.

When the Fund reaches £3,000 a special memorial plaque can be placed on a dedicated tree in our Memorial Orchard in our centre in Llandudno. Each tree is dedicated to one person (or a couple).

Donating to your Tribute Fund

Some people like to keep busy by organising and hosting a family quiz night; taking part in a sky dive or marathon; or some like to set up a regular direct debit or give at special times of the year – like birthdays, anniversaries and Christmas.

Making contributions to your loved one’s Fund is easy, you can write a cheque to Blind Veterans UK, make a debit/credit card payment over the phone or online; or we can even send you a collection box if you’re holding an event in support of Blind Veterans UK.
