Our work at Merthyr Tydfil Institute for the Blind provides a vital service to disabled people, and helping them to overcome barriers they may have so that they can gain and sustain employment, and provide a valuable contribution to society. 

Over recent years, we have endured, and continue to endure, a cut in how we are funded, which puts pressure on what we can achieve with the resources we have available. We are a small charity, and we make sure that all funds are put effectively to work in order to achieve our goals. 


A gift from you helps us continue to either directly employ disabled people directly in our supported manufacturing facility, or in the wider community by maintaining our links with employers who are keen to see why a disabled person can be a valuable member of the workforce, and so that we continue our work to show that “disability should not be a barrier to employment”


If you are going to take part in an event - either a run, a bake sale, a coffee morning, or any other occasion, we would be extremely grateful if you would consider raising funds in our name to aide us in our important work. You can either do this "offline" and send us a cheque or cash, through the popular "Just Giving" website, or use the button opposite and fill in your details.
