One in five people in the UK face a shocking and life changing diagnosis of disability at some point in their lives, with someone going blind every hour. However, the right facilities and support mean that a disability does not have to dictate how you live your life. And it most certainly does not have to mean a loss of vital independence and self-worth.
Jewish Blind & Disabled is the only organisation in the Jewish community dedicated to enabling people to maintain their much-prized independence. Our specialist developments of one and two-bedroom mobility apartments, with 24/7 on site support, house people from the age of 18 upwards, many of whom would have no other organisation to turn to.
And for those wanting to remain in their own home, our Independent Living Advisory Service produces bespoke reports recommending the aids and adaptations that will enable this wish to be realised, and we even fund potentially life changing aids where these would otherwise not be affordable. As an independent charity that does not receive any government funding, Jewish Blind & Disabled is very grateful for your support.
