Community groups

Donations raised by community groups are invaluable to Sightsavers’ work. Your loyal support can help us protect sight and fight for disability rights.

Worldwide, 2.2 billion people have a visual impairment, but almost half of this is preventable or treatable.

Sightsavers works in more than 30 countries to treat eye conditions, prevent blinding diseases and advocate for the rights of people with disabilities.

We currently work with a range of organisations, and we’d like to encourage groups from all walks of life to get involved if they think Sightsavers is the right fit for them.

We no longer run a volunteer speaker programme, but we can provide posters, leaflets and videos to support your club’s fundraising events and activities.

If you’d like to get involved, or find out more about the groups we work with, email [email protected]
