Accrington & District Blind Society is one of the smaller independent local charities supporting people with a sight loss in the UK. We serve a large part of East Lancashire including Hyndburn and parts of Rossendale.
Our Resource Centre displays many useful items, information and equipment, from little ‘bump ons’ to CCTV magnifiers and everything in between like clocks, watches, magnifiers and liquid level indicators. All items to be used by people with a sight loss are sold at cost.
Established in 1875 we recently celebrated our 140th anniversary. We are completely volunteer led and rely on donations and legacies for our continued operation. As a voluntary organisation, we are very grateful to all our supporters and volunteers who work so hard to enable local blind and partially sighted people to see a better future.
