We are the only local sight support charity that will visit you in the comfort of your own home, providing emotional and practical support, helping you adjust to living with sight loss.
Sight is a remarkable gift but in 2019, there are an estimated 22,500 people with some degree of disabling sight loss in Northamptonshire. By 2030, as the County’s population grows and ages, this number could rise to over 32,000. We need your help to meet this growing demand for our services.
We’ve recently had an official piece of research conducted by the University of Northampton’s Social Institute for Social Innovation and Impact.
It concludes that our services are “clearly effective and impactful”. So impactful in fact that every £1.00 spent on our home visiting service generates £4.00 of positive Social Impact.
Based upon the indicative social impact data collected and reported on as part of this research project, it is estimated that NAB has had a social impact worth £2,496,789.70.
We’re really pleased with it as it confirms what we’d always thought but didn’t know for a fact – that not only are we quite good at what we do, what we do makes a positive difference to the lives of the people we are here to support, their family and friends.
This, we hope, will give confidence not only to our funders and those who run our public services – investing in services for the visually impaired clearly makes sense and more to the point saves money – but to our wonderful staff and volunteers who make it all possible and last but not least, our beneficiaries – the very people we are here to support.
We would like to say thank you to the following supporters who have made our work more possible
For more than 125 years we have been working with blind and partially sighted people throughout Northamptonshire helping thousands of individuals transform their lives.
