How to contact this service
As Northamptonshire's local sight loss charity, the Northamptonshire Association for the Blind (NAB) provides advice, support, and products to help visually impaired people live life to the full. They are the only local sight support charity that will visit people in the comfort of their own homes, providing emotional and practical support, helping people adjust to living with sight loss.
They can offer immediate and ongoing specialist advice and information over the telephone or in the comfort of your own home by our Youth and Activities Support Worker.
They can offer practical advice and guidance about the availability of leisure services and activities in the county.
They can offer taster days with local sports/recreational clubs for specific, visually impaired sessions (that can then be held and run on a regular basis by those clubs).
They offer excursions and social events for younger visually impaired service users and their families to come together and share fun and build friendships.
NAB’s Eye Educate programme will raise awareness of visual impairment via 45-60 minute talks in primary schools across the county.
