National Federation of the Blind of the UK is a registered charity founded by blind and partially sighted people in 1947 and is an independent, non political, self help campaigning group, which is still run by blind and partially sighted people.

With representatives in numerous organisations and committees, working with Local Authority and Government departments, we strive to improve the overall welfare and quality of daily life for all blind, partially sighted, deaf-blind people and those whose sight impairment is part of multi disability.

NFBUK are keen to inspire a global conversation on the accessibility of urban environments using film, media and social media to tell stories of how blind, visually impaired and disabled people access education, health and rehabilitation services, employment and social life activities. By providing a platform in the UK for these issues to be publicised and discussed, and to share knowledge on how to use film, media and social media to get accessibility onto the political agenda.
