As a small, independent charity, small charities week (June 19th to 23rd 2023) holds a dear and special place in our hearts with its aim of celebrating and championing the amazing work that the small charity sector does.

Why is it important to support small charities?

Small charities don’t often have such a wide profile as large charities, so it’s important to raise awareness on the work they do.

Small charities – like NAB – often provide a lot of locally based resources. For example, our office is in Northampton, and our services – from home visits, additional support in hospitals and events – are based within the Northamptonshire County.

We are independent, which means we rely on donations to provide services to the visually impaired community within our county. Any donation, big or small, is always so appreciated.

Small charity volunteers

Volunteer – we welcome people who can give as much, or as little time as they can, to help us with our range of services including:

  • Befriending our service users (home visits or on the phone)
  • Helping with our weekly talking news service
  • Helping at our fundraising events
  • Supporting our social clubs within the county
  • Assisting at our Social Eyes events and activities

We would also like to take the opportunity to thank everyone who has helped support us over the years, it makes such a difference to us and our services.
