Focus Birmingham is a specialist charity providing expert support, advice and information to anyone in the Birmingham area affected by sight loss or other disabilities. And because sight loss and disability affects family, friends and carers, we will work with them too.

Over 29,000 people in Birmingham live with sight loss, which has devastating consequences. It prevents people from driving and working; it may restrict social interaction, cause isolation, and remove a person’s independence, it can lead to low self-esteem, lack of self-confidence or depression.
