Get Involved

We’re here to help people live life to the full. We don’t have the resources or the income of the large national charities – so we have to work harder – and we need your help!

Why choose Henshaws?

We are a specialist charity providing expert support, advice and training to anyone affected by sight loss and other disabilities. Last year alone, we supported over 6,000 visually impaired people in the North of England.

Having a visual impairment or disability can mean people lose confidence in their future and find themselves isolated. We strive to support people to ensure that they do not feel alone, and that they have the skills and confidence to lead a live that is full of choice and opportunity.

We rely on your generous help to ensure we can continue this life-changing work, and we truly appreciate anything you can do to support us.

Faces of fundraising

“My daughter walked from Blackpool Tower to Old Trafford, a distance of 60 miles, wearing a blindfold and being led by her dad on foot and me behind in the family car to raise awareness and money for Henshaws.

It was much tougher than we thought but we received tremendous support along the way. We were overwhelmed by the support and affection expressed for Alicia.

It was a huge relief when we arrived at Old Trafford. I cannot begin to tell you how proud and inspired I was by what Alicia had done.”
