Welcome to The Hertfordshire Society for the Blind website!

The Hertfordshire Society for the Blind (HSB) is an independent local registered charity formed in 1915. It provides services, advice and information to blind and partially sighted people throughout Hertfordshire, as well as to their families, carers and any organisations with an interest or involvement in people with a visual impairment.

Our Mission

Our Vision

'For all people with a visual impairment to have the same rights, opportunities and responsibilities as others and for HSB to be acknowledged as the leading third sector provider of sightloss services to those people in Hertfordshire.'
