Founded in April 2012, Helping Hands for the blind eliminates social inequalities by providing help, advice and support for the blind, visually impaired, their families and carers. This can help to maintain their independence and improve the quality of their lives. It is an organisation of blind people who want to help other blind people. It is a problem solving organization. It is a guide that blind people can turn to in times of need.
Probably the most important service offered by the organization is that of assistance. This could mean sourcing funding assistance like helping with the rent or groceries. Quite often, however, it can take other forms. Referrals are made for legal matters concerning the blind.
