Braille Events

Over the next few months, we’ll be offering a series of conference calls to teach people the braille code and enable people to make the most of their braille knowledge. Many of these have been made possible by the Winston Churchill Memorial Trust Fellowship, which awards grants to inspiring individuals who possess the passion and commitment to make a real difference. You can find out more on our Events page.

Braille Equipment

We are delighted to be able to offer a range of free braille equipment. For more information, please see our Equipment page.
