We offer grants and bursaries to any person with a permanent non-correctable vision impairment, living in Breconshire to help pay for equipment, education, services, training and experiences (such as holidays). Applications are welcome from the vision impaired person, their families, carers or relevant professional.
In general we will not pay for anything that would normally be provided by the National Health Service or Local Authority (including schools, colleges and social services). There are organisations and schemes that loan low vision aid equipment for free which we can assist with contacting like the Low Vision Service Wales.
You may find it helps to look at online information or visit a resource centre to identify aids and equipment to help with living with sight loss. Grants will be considered for specific items, or services upon receipt of an application form
VIB also provides an annual bursary to enable an individual to pursue an educational or sporting activity to better themselves or participate in a leisure activity on a regular basis. We provide a cash sum of up to £500. . Applications for bursaries will be considered for a specific activity upon receipt of an application form.
For ideas, or further help finding equipment or services suitable to your needs take a look at the Equipment/Service Provider page.
