Our History


In 1922 the charity was formed to help the blind people of Portsmouth and later this was extended to include all visually impaired people.

Portsmouth Association for the blind is the only charity specifically for the Vision Impaired people in Porstmouth.

We are totally dependent on donations received from the public. Your help is always welcome no matter how little it may seem.

We also operate a School’s Awareness programme, schools who contact us may receive a visit from a team of volunteers who demonstrate accessibility aids and methods of communication used by VI people.

We also operate a home visiting service.
