About RNIB

 We’re one of the world’s leading disability agencies. With nearly 150 years’ experience of working with disabled people, we’re uniquely placed to offer solutions to the challenges your business faces.

 Our values

 We strongly believe that a good product or service must be accessible to all, but our offering goes well beyond traditional models of corporate social responsibility.

 We aim to help businesses to maximise the value of their products and services by opening them up to the 12.2 million disabled people in the UK. In fact, households which include a disabled person have a combined income of £212bn after housing costs, making this a market segment that no business should ignore.

 What your business means to us

 Our business services are an integral part of RNIB. We invest all of the income we receive back into the vital services we offer as a charity.

 Our services directly provide support to people from the point they are diagnosed with sight loss, so no-one has to face the future alone. By working with us, not only are you going to engage a world class solution to your organisation’s accessibility needs, you’re also playing your part in supporting blind and partially sighted people in the UK.
