Helping children gain confidence, realise aspirations & build independence

Our specially created, focused service provides practical advice, guidance, activities and support to children and families from the moment a child is diagnosed, and through each key stage of their development up until 18 years of age.

NAB EyeKids group

Request to join our Facebook page: NAB EyeKids (Families), a fantastic space for parents and carers of visually impaired children (age 0-18 years of age) living in Northamptonshire:

  • Keep up to date on all our latest activities and events.
  • Share tips, chat, make friends, share stories and discuss anything of interest with other families.

Every donation, big or small, helps us make a difference.

As an independent, local charity, we rely on the goodwill of those around us to help visually impaired people live life to the full. However you choose to support us, your money stays local - helping someone in your street, community or village.

Our vital work is only possible thanks to you, our supporters.

Can you help us make a difference?

We offer support to the local community

NAB’s Eye Clinic Liaison Officers (ECLOs) provide dedicated, individualised care to sight loss patients, their families and carers.

At Northamptonshire Association for the Blind and Visually Impaired, we understand that living with, or coming to terms with sight loss, can be very overwhelming.

We work to help children gain confidence, realise aspirations and build a sense of personal independence.

Raising awareness about living with visual impairment in schools, the workplace and within the wider community.

Our Mobile Sight Centre (MSC) travels the breadth of the county, providing an easy way to access our services.
