The Norfolk and Norwich Association for the Blind (The NNAB) is one of Norfolk's oldest charities and the fifth oldest Association for the visually impaired and blind in the United Kingdom.

Its mission is to help Norfolk's 20,000 people with poor sight remain independent and confident.  Sight loss affects all age groups and the Association supports everyone from new born to those over 100 years of age.   Last year its community workers made nearly 7,000 separate visits to individuals in their homes and there were over 6,000 visitors to the five equipment centres in Norwich, King's Lynn, Great Yarmouth, Cromer, Watton and our Mobile Centre.

In Norwich it has a residential home for 37 residents and 20 sheltered flats as well as a volunteer presence in all four hospital eye clinics in the County.  It has a busy sports and leisure programme and over 200 active volunteers give generously of their time to deliver these essential aspects of the charity.  The Bradbury Activity Centre, located in Norwich, acts as a hub for all that the Association does for Norfolk's visually impaired and blind - whatever the age and wherever they are in the County.

The Association receives no state funding of any sort instead relying entirely on legacies and donations.
