Vision, Mission and Values of the NCBI

Who We Are and What We Do

NCBI, the national sight loss agency, is a not for profit charitable organisation which provides support and services nationwide to people experiencing sight loss.

We also provide a range of services to public and private organisations to make sure that their services are accessible to people who are blind and vision impaired.

How NCBI is governed

NCBI is made up of four independent yet inter-related companies: NCBI Group, NCBI Services, NCBI Retail and NCBI Charitable Foundation. Each company is limited by guarantee and is a registered charity.

National Vision Coalition

The National Vision Coalition is an alliance of healthcare professionals, those working in the sight loss community, and, most importantly, service users that were brought together in 2012 by NCBI and Fighting Blindness.
