Welsh charity, Sight Cymru, supports people to live independently despite them losing or having lost their sight. In recognition that some ethnic groups are six times more likely to suffer sight loss, the charity works with community groups and schools to encourage early sight tests. It also encourages home-based rehabilitation to build resilience and confidence for people losing their sight.


Sight Cymru does fantastic work in supporting those affected by sight loss to stay healthy and independent. It is committed to the health and wellbeing of those with sight loss and works hard to raise awareness of the importance of eye health. Its work with all of Wales’s diverse communities is particularly impressive.
