NCBI’s prominence today as a major service provider to vision impaired people was made possible by the partnership between staff and supporting volunteers.
Our Vision Health Map 2017 outlines the amount of people with sight loss in Ireland, per county. 75% of blindness is preventable, over 51, 000 are living with sight loss with a further 200, 000 affected by it.
Today, volunteers continue to play an important role in NCBI’s work. Their involvement enhances our work, allows us to deliver a broader range of services, raises our profile and extends our network of active collaboration within local communities.
