Royal Society for Blind Children – Public Collector


Details of the Charity:

The Royal Society for Blind Children (RSBC) believe in a better life for blind children. No child in the UK should grow up to be poor or lonely just because they are blind. The RSBC are on a mission to make sure every single blind child has the self-belief and skills to fulfil their potential.

  1. Helping parents first
  2. Bet in class, inclusive education
  3. Building friendships, independence and resilience
  4. Getting young people job ready
