Our commitment to you

The work we do is completely down to you, our incredible supporters who help us in the fight against sight loss.

A huge portion of our support comes from a large number of individual donations, sponsored events and by people remembering us in their Wills. Our supporters also regularly hold community fundraising events in our name, which are organised through local groups and volunteers. We also actively raise money through grants and corporate partnerships.

Further details on how we run the charity and our finances can be found in our annual report and accounts.

We know the way we operate and behave is important to you. This is something we take seriously.

We fund the best quality science


Only medical research can bring an end to sight loss. We use your donation to fund the very best research.

We are currently investing more than £6.3 million in 117 projects at leading universities and hospitals across the UK to transform lives all over the world.

All applications for funding are rigorously peer reviewed by international leaders in the relevant disease areas to ensure we are funding world class research. Further details on our commitment to research can be found in our research strategy.

We are committed to high standards


As a charity focussed on enabling people to see, our aim is to be clear-sighted and accessible to all. We are committed to providing you with the highest quality of service.
