Kingston Upon Thames Association for the Blind

About Us

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, that help people with sight loss to meet other people in the same condition which really helps with their well-being.

Our members of staff are mostly visually impaired and are assisted by a Support Worker. We also have a number of volunteers who help with our wonderful activities.

Membership is free and is open to blind and partially sighted people residing in the Royal Borough of Kingston upon Thames.
