Monthly

For £10 a month, you can fund our Information and Advice line which offers support in times of crisis, or simply a caring, sympathetic ear when someone feels sad or isolated.

For £15 a month, you could pay for a subsidised venue to host a member forum, which provides an opportunity for our members to meet and socialise, and a chance to share their thoughts and ideas on how the charity should grow and develop

If you are able to donate £40 a month, that would pay for a sessional worker to host and actively participate in monthly social groups, which are vital for providing our deafblind members with a safe place to meet, reducing their isolation and loneliness.

If you are able to donate £80 a month, you could fund IT equipment that allows our Digital Inclusion Manager to showcase technological adaptations and devices that transform our deafblind members’ online

Testimonials

Daisy and her volunteer

I can’t see well enough to read books so often I will spend the day sitting alone with my thoughts. Deafblind UK has been great in finding me a volunteer, I’m so grateful I really don’t know what I’d do without her

Daisy

Jennifer

I now have Deafblind UK and others around me who understand sight loss and know exactly what I’m talking about. A massive part of it has been the emotional support, someone to share with and understand what I am going through. It has given me hope for the future and raised my spirits

“Being part of the Deafblind NI group means I have the chance to talk to people who experience the same everyday challenges that I do. It is comforting to know that I’m not alone and that Deafblind NI is there to support me in other ways if I need. It also gives me the opportunity to take part in activities and experiences that I would not have otherwise done.
