Portsmouth Association For The Blind

Registered Charity Number: 1142574
Stamshaw, Portsmouth

The Charity has existed and evolved since 1924 serving the needs of Blind and Vision impaired people whether they are registered or not. We provide a social centre where from Monday to Friday our members can meet and take part in various activities usually dictated by themselves. These include a singing group, bingo, regular "PAB" lunches and even ten Pin Bowling at a nearby Alley.

Members are free to make their own way to the groups or be collected at their front door by our bus service. There are nominal charges for lunches and the busses which are heavily subsidised by Charitable donations from local stores etc.

We also operate a School's Awareness service, schools who contact us receive visits from a team oif volunteers who demonstrate accessibility aids and methods of communication used by VI people. Being in the majority VI themselves they are able to explain what it is like for someone with a degree of blindness to integrate into the community.

Also we operate a Home Visiting service for those of our members who are either too infirm, for various reasons, to leave their home or although mobile need assistance with letter reading and writing or other personal administration tasks.
