British Blind Sport Governance

British Blind Sport is the leading national disability sports organisation representing blind and partially sighted people living in the UK. Our mission is to achieve a visible difference through sport for both children and adults living with sight loss by providing opportunities for them and their families to participate in sport and recreational activities from grassroots to elite level.
