Telephones for the Blind is changing.
50 years ago our founders met a communication need with the current technology of the day. For more than 50 years we have provided grants towards line rental and / or the installation of BT landlines for people who are blind or visually impaired.
However ways of communicating are changing all around us. Even smart phones risk becoming yesterday’s technology. So we are temporarily stopping our landline offer whilst we examine what we should be doing now. This does not change the service we are currently supplying to nearly 300 people across the country.
