KAB supports sight impaired people to live independent lives.
We feel that anyone who has a sight impairment should be able to live a fulfilled, healthy and safe life, exercise self-determination and make informed choices, and achieve their own personal goals.
We help make this a reality by providing comprehensive support services to people of any age and any stage of the sight loss journey. We work in Kent, Medway, Bromley and Bexley.
