Kingston Upon Thames Association for the Blind

About Us

Kingston upon Thames Association for the Blind (KAB), charity registration number 249295, was established in 1966 to promote the interests of blind and partially sighted people living in The Royal Borough of Kingston Upon Thames. We do this through a range of social and sports activities and an Eye Buddy Scheme.  KAB employ 1 member of staff, who is assisted by a Support Worker and a number of volunteers.  The Association works closely with the Kingston Council, the Sight & Hearing Service, Kingston Hospital Royal Eye Unit, Kingston Voluntary Action, Kingston Centre for Independent Living and other Sight Loss Charities and organisations.

KAB also supports the weekly Kingston Talking Newspaper, as well as local groups, Surbiton Blind Club, Coombe & New Malden  Blind Club.  

Membership is free and is open to blind and partially sighted people residing in the Royal Borough of Kingston upon Thames, or anyone that is interested with their wellbeing.
