Adapting how we work

Given the impact of COVID-19 on the delivery of the charity’s work, VICTA is now working at reduced capacity. We are still active in the background moving things forward and planning future activities. We will do our best to keep you up to date with changes as and when they happen but please bear with us if things take a little longer than normal. This is especially true with respect to our grants programme.

If you need to contact us, please do so via email but remember we may not be able to get back to you straight away. If you don’t have the contact details of the member of staff you need, please email grants@victa.org.uk and we will direct your enquiry to the correct person.

For now, we would like to thank you for your understanding and patience. We would also like to thank those of you who shared messages of support, please keep in touch over the next few weeks.

VICTA supports children and young adults who are blind or partially sighted by providing grants that support the purchase of equipment to aid their visual impairment.

Please note that Given the impact of COVID-19 the VICTA grant scheme is currently suspended. If you would like to be notified when the grant scheme reopens, please sign up for VICTA email updates here >
