Description

The telephone number given is for the Helpline. If you wish to speak to Action's head office, please call 020 7635 4800.

Working with RNIB, we are one of the largest charities in the UK providing free and confidential support to blind and partially sighted people.

We have a network of teams covering most areas of England. We also have three Vision hotels across England (the Lauriston Hotel in Somerset, the Cliffden Hotel in south Devon and Windermere Manor in the Lake District).

We offer support with employment, including through our dedicated employment line (0800 440 2255), to both employees and employers. We also offer support to children and families, with our Actionnaires clubs encouraging young people with sight loss to participate in sport. We can also help with housing, technology and welfare rights issues, and we have a national mobile service. We also provide visual awareness training.
