Radios for the Blind

This project aims to help the 3,000 or so people across the UK whose sight begins to deteriorate to the point where they are no longer able to operate a standard radio, by supplying them with specially adapted radio/audio players.

Radios for the blind

For people living with sight loss, radio becomes a prime source of news, information and entertainment. Sets are issued on a free loan basis to those in hardship circumstances who are unable to afford the higher cost of these modified sets. The person receiving the set will receive instruction on its use, a large-font or CD instruction manual, headphones (if required), an information pack and an undertaking to repair or replace the set if necessary.
