We’re Blind Veterans UK, a charity that helps vision-impaired ex-service people from every generation rebuild their lives after their sight has been affected. Founded in 1915, by Sir Arthur Pearson, to help the many veterans losing their sight after the First World War, we have over a century of experience providing the best care to our veterans.
In order to realise the full potential of vision research for the benefit of blind veterans and the wider vision impaired sector, it was decided to separate our research department into its own charity in 2021, Bravo Victor.
The Sight Loss Sector Partnership has awarded Bravo Victor a grant to establish and operate a new and exciting web-based development, the Visual Impairment (VI) Insight Hub.

Supported by a web development company and working groups drawn from partner organisations, you will co-ordinate and manage information and produce content and communications.
You will collaborate with charities, academia and government departments to create infographics and animated summaries that inform the visually impaired and provide vital information.
Additionally, you will present work to potential users or stakeholders, using recognised and suitable channels to communicate findings and implications.
