Introducing RP Fighting Blindness

Retinitis pigmentosa (RP) is a disease of the eye that leads to loss of vision and blindness. RP Fighting Blindness works hard to stimulate and fund cutting edge research to find a treatment or cure and support those affected. You can learn lots more using the links across the top of this page.

Our Mission

To stimulate and support high quality medical research with the aim of increasing scientific understanding of retinitis pigmentosa (and related conditions) and finding treatments or cures for the condition that, when developed, are accessible to anyone affected, and to identify or provide good quality and universally-accessible information and support services for people affected.

Our Vision

We aspire to a world in which people with RP will have access to treatments or a cure and will not lose their sight.

Our Values

The charity is committed to focus on its objectives, transparency in all matters, collaboration with other organisations, fair business practices and equality of opportunity.

You Can Help Us

Take a look at how you can support us by joining, donating, or taking part in an event. You will be helping us give hope to people with RP across the UK and worldwide.

Important Note

On 01 January 2014 RP Fighting Blindness transferred its operations to a new Charitable Incorporated Organisation (CIO) and so has a new charity number (1153851). Donations made under this or the old number (271729) will be directed towards our work. Both numbers may appear on various websites and documents for a period.
