Objectives

The Norfolk and Norwich Association for the Blind (The NNAB) has a mission to help Norfolk's 20,000 people with poor sight remain independent and confident. Sight loss affects all age groups and the Association supports everyone from new born to those over 100 years of age.  Last year our community workers made nearly 7,000 separate visits to individuals in their homes and there were over 6,000 visitors to our Equipment Centres in Norwich, King's Lynn, Great Yarmouth and Cromer and to our Mobile Centre.

Activities

In Norwich we have a residential home for 37 residents and 20 supported living flats for people with visual impairment. We have a volunteer presence in all four hospital eye clinics in the County making contact with people newly diagnosed to let them know about the help we can provide. We have a busy sports and leisure programme and over 200 active volunteers give generously of their time to deliver these essential aspects of the charity. The Bradbury Activity Centre, located in Norwich and opened by our Patron, Her Majesty The Queen, in 2010 acts as a hub for all that the Association does for Norfolk's visually impaired and blind - whatever the age and wherever they are in the County.
