The British Wireless for the Blind Fund provides provides high quality, easy to use audio equipment which has been specially designed and adapted for listeners living with sight loss.

BWBF offers a range of sets to meet different needs, from a simple digital radio to a wireless internet audio player, with an audible programme guide.  Sets are provided on free permanent loan to registered blind or registered partially sighted people who meet the criteria.

Sight Loss Shropshire acts as the Shropshire, Telford and Wrekin agent for BWBF.  We establish that recipients are eligible to receive a set on a free loan basis, ensure the listening needs of each individual are considered and that the appropriate set is identified to best meet the recipient’s needs.
