The Norfolk and Norwich
Association for the Blind (The NNAB) has been working in Norfolk and Norwich
Its mission is 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 their community
workers made nearly 7,000 separate visits to individuals in their homes and
there were over 6,000 visitors to the five equipment centres in Norwich,
King's Lynn, Great Yarmouth, Cromer, Watton and their Mobile Centre.
In Norwich, they have a residential
home for 37 residents and 20 sheltered flats as well as a volunteer presence in
all four hospital eye clinics in the County. They 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 The Norfolk & Norwich Association for The
Blind 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.
Like the Edith Ellen
Foundation, The Association receives no state funding of any sort instead relys
entirely on legacies and donations, so please do think of them when you are
considering making a donation to a charity - all the money raised in Norfolk is
spent in Norfolk, and that's a promise!
