Cornwall Blind Association is the only local charity which exists to improve the lives of visually impaired people in Cornwall. It campaigns to help all of us understand how we can protect our sight throughout our lives and it provides significant support to people who have already have sight difficulties.
There are an estimated 19,000 people living in Cornwall affected by severe sight loss. At Cornwall Blind Association we can offer emotional and practical help to anyone living with sight loss, either by visiting our Sight Centre in Truro or by bringing our range of services directly out to your home.
Cornwall Blind Association is both a charity and a company, set up over 150 years ago to support miners who were losing their sight due to mining accidents. We have strong Cornish roots and have come a long way since that time, providing a wide range of services for visually impaired people living in Cornwall.
