About Visionary Members (Full Members)

Visionary currently has almost 100 Full members. These are all independent charities delivering vital services to visually impaired people at a local level. Our members are in touch with over 160,000 blind and partially sighted people but that’s only the tip of the iceberg – there are estimated to be over 2 million people in the UK with significant sight loss who would benefit from contact with their local sight loss charity.

Local societies have to find their own funding and their income can come from several sources including contract work with their local authority, applications to trust funds or the national lottery programmes but most rely on bequests or voluntary donations from the public.

Local societies rely a great deal on volunteers to deliver their services. If you would like to volunteer for a local blind organisation do get in touch to see what opportunities are available in your area. 


“Visionary can be a life-line for smaller organisations and works equally well with local organisations of all sizes.   Regional Visionary groups develop strong working regional relationships leading to regional partnership working, increasing reach and benefit to the regions’ vision impaired service users as a result.” - Feedback from Northumberland County Blind Association, a member of Visionary
