Resources for Carers supporting blind and partially sighted people 

At RealSAM we are passionate about using technology to provide solutions for individuals with diverse needs, and we partner with charities supporting the sight loss and disability community and their carers.  

We have put together several lists of organisations supporting those who are blind, visually impaired and disabled in Scotland, Wales, & Northern Ireland. We also partner with many charities in England who are RealSAM demonstrators.

We have found most of them support carers along with those who are directly dealing with disabilities. They have dedicated staff and volunteers who are eager to provide help or signpost people to the right resources.  

We’ve pulled together this list of links to Resources for Carers that may be helpful to you or a loved one in need of support:
