York Blind & Partially Sighted Society is a thriving, independent, local charity working to help people with sight loss to remain independent.

Our aim is to support people in York to live well, with sight loss. Our experienced staff and friendly volunteers are always happy to help.

YBPSS became a registered charity in 1979. We now have a membership of over 1,000 visually impaired people. We are governed by an Executive Committee, many of whom are visually impaired themselves.

You will find information about the organisation and the services we provide on this site. If you would like to know more about anything we do please telephone on the number above, visit our city centre premises or click here to book an appointment
