British Blind Sport
British Blind Sport is the only national sports and physical activity charity exclusively for children and adults with sight loss. In the UK, there are more than 2 million children and adults with severe sight loss and they need our help now more than ever before.
• Two-thirds of people with severe sight loss live below the poverty line
• Over 90% of those who lose their sight in their youth will never have a long-term job
• People with sight loss are more likely to experience loneliness and nearly half report feeling isolated and cut-off from society
BBS uses the power of sport to change the lives of people with sight loss and support them in leading more active, independent and healthy lives. At BBS, we know that physical activity has the huge potential to transform the health and wellbeing of people with sight loss.
