Supporting blind ex-Service men and women

For almost a century, St Dunstan’s has been giving invaluable physical and emotional support to blind and visually impaired ex-Service men and women. With the help of our unique expertise, experience and comprehensive range of services, we enable them to lead independent fulfilling lives.  Click here to read about our history.

Partners for life

We’re there for St Dunstaners for as long as they need us. We help them adjust to their loss of sight and learn new skills – and our support lasts a lifetime. We help families too, as they adjust to their changing needs.

How we help

We help St Dunstaners become self-sufficient, regain their optimism and make the most of opportunities. On a practical level, our services include:

  • Rehabilitation
  • Teaching new skills
  • Resolving housing issues
  • Help with benefit claims
  • Access to sporting facilities and social activities
  • A sense of belonging to the St Dunstan’s family

Our Centres

Our flagship Centre at Ovingdean, near Brighton offers introductory training weeks, training in new skills and crafts, holidays and respite care, sports and social activities and care for a limited number of permanent residents. 

A second Centre in Sheffield focuses on residential, training and assessment courses. A third Centre in Llandudno has been purchased. Building work and refurbishment will commence in Spring 2010.

New centre in Llandudno

To help meet the needs of growing numbers of St Dunstaners we plan to open a third centre in Llandudno once the design and refurbishment has been completed.  The centre will offer holidays, respite care and training and have 40 bedrooms, a bar, a dining room and two lounges, as well as a gymnasium, craft room and a range of training facilities.
