Happy birthday Louis Braille!
In honour of World Braille Day, our Braille Awareness Coordinator, Chantelle Griffiths, has written about the impact braille has had on her life.
We stock a wide range of products for people who are blind or low vision including canes, sunglasses, talking clocks and watches, and helpful tools for around the home.
The Blind Foundation library has a large collection of books, magazines, newspapers and other content in a range of accessible formats – including braille, large print, tactile, and audio. There are different ways to access our collections, depending on your needs. Find out more about our Library services.
