The Norfolk and Norwich Association for the Blind

Norfolk’s specialised, independent and local charity helping blind and visually impaired people of all ages enjoy active and fulfilled lives


The NNAB provides:

  • Accommodation and Care
  • Community Visiting Services
  • Education and Recreation

For everyone with sight loss in Norfolk.


The NNAB, founded in 1805, directly supports over 7000 visually impaired adults and children in the County – but there are another 15,000 we desperately need to reach.  The Association is funded entirely through gift, donation and legacy; receiving no state, social services or council funding. Donations will be a  boost to the work we do now and that which we aspire to achieve for all age groups – from new born to those over 100 years of age.

It will help our specialist residential home for 37 elderly visually impaired and blind people and 20 wardened flats.  We can continue to provide Ten Community Workers making home visits offering help, information and advice.  We will maintain the 7 cross-County Equipment and Information Centres that we run in the communities and we will continue to deliver a vibrant sports and leisure programme which enables our visually impaired and blind family to sail, ride tandem bicycles, go rambling, swim, conduct heritage and theatre visits as well as attend book clubs and craft classes.  Your support will go a long way because this is a Norfolk charity for all of Norfolk’s people.

Join us and we’ll support your Tour de Broads challenge. Pledge to raise at least £150 for NNAB and your entry is free.
