This report spotlights how vision impaired people in the UK experience loneliness. It reveals that they are more likely to experience loneliness and isolation and to feel it more severely than the general population.

There’s a pressing need to find ways to make it easier for vision impaired people to engage in activities and experiences that improve wellbeing, reduce isolation and bring joy.

This report explores trends in the lived experience of loneliness and isolation for people who are blind and vision impaired. With moving first-hand accounts from interviewees at its heart, this report creates a compelling case for change, and we hope it will inform and inspire action from our partners, the wider sector and beyond.
