Does RNIB offer any grants?

Our grants service is able to offer up to £500 towards useful items to help registered blind and partially sighted people live independently. You must be receiving a means-tested benefit to apply to us. If you are awarded a grant, you will not be able to apply for another one until three years after the date you were paid.

We are able to consider grants towards the following items: 

We only have limited funds, so for some items we are only able to consider funding towards them if they are within our maximum price limits. Our application form lists how much these maximum amounts are.

If you are not eligible to apply for one of our grants, or we are not able to consider the items you need help towards, you can use our Other sources of grants factsheet (Word 240KB) for contact details of other organisations which may be able to help.

Read more about our grants service or download an application form, or call our Helpline on 0303 123 999 for more information.
