Blind Independence Greenwich
Helping blind and partially-sighted people
in the Royal Borough of Greenwich
We are a London-based charity, supported by RLSB (the Royal London Society for Blind People), which exists to help local people with little or no sight within the Royal Borough of Greenwich.
With the right support, partially-sighted people in our borough can lead fuller, more independent lives. At BIG we offer friendship and practical day-to-day help and advice, as well as a packed calendar of social events, trips and get-togethers.
Our mission is to empower visually impaired people in Greenwich borough to live fuller and more independent lives, benefiting from the generosity of volunteers who in turn widen their own horizons.
