St Dunstan's was founded in 1915 and is a national charity providing lifelong support to blind and visually impaired ex-Service men and women and their families. The aim is to help the beneficiaries regain their independence and make the most of the opportunities available to them through rehabilitation, training, support and advice.
Type of Help
For those eligible, the benefits available include suitable training and this will depend upon the age and needs of the individual.
Our Rehabilitation and Training Departments at Ovingdean and Sheffield, run tailored introductory courses for new beneficiaries.
The courses cover:
- Orientation and mobility
- Independent living skills
- Arts and crafts
Our highly-trained Rehabilitation Officers for Visually Impaired People (ROVIs) assess, advise and train each beneficiary according to their individual needs, helping them to improve their level of independence.”
