Every 15 minutes another person in the UK starts to lose their sight. We've launched a new campaign to ensure no one has to face sight loss alone. Everyone should have access to the support of a sight loss adviser.

Sight loss advisers support people at the moment of diagnosis by offering practical and emotional support. Find out more on our website...

Louis Braille created the raised system of dots known as braille as a schoolboy after he lost his sight. Celebrate the contribution he made to accessible reading and writing by holding an event to raise funds for RNIB.

You can dress up in polka-dot clothing, bake dotty cakes, or even learn braille yourself. Visit Read for RNIB to find out more about we're dots and raising lots!

Don't throw away your used stamps this Christmas! Send them to us instead and help raise money for RNIB. It doesn't matter where they are from, or if they are used. Why not encourage your friends and family to send us their stamps too?

We'd like to say a huge thank you to staff at MUSIC, an independent, award-winning creative studio based in Manchester who have become RNIB's first ever Sooty Box Hit Squad, volunteering to place 60 new Sooty collection boxes in December.
