Help us make a difference

We can only continue funding high quality research and supporting people with RP and related conditions thanks to contributions from our wonderful supporters. We have plenty of exciting work planned for 2017 and need your help to make it happen!

Research
We’ve shortlisted seven promising research projects that we’d like to fund this year, but the number we can support depends entirely on the money we raise. Find out more about our 2017 Innovation Fund or explore some of our current projects. Please consider making a donation and help us drive pioneering investigations into inherited retinal dystrophies.

Information and support
We provide the only dedicated support available to people with RP in the UK. We help hundreds of people every year through our Patient Information Days and RP Helpline. This year we are conducting research that will inform the development of new services for families and working age adults.

How you can help
We rely entirely on donations from supporters to fund both our research and our information and support services. We are so grateful for every gift we receive, so please consider donating today.

You can also use the links to the left to explore other ways you can help. Do you fancy taking on a running or challenge event? Could you support us through your business or charitable trust? Perhaps you might consider leaving a gift to RP Fighting Blindness in your will?

Each and every contribution makes a difference
£25 could provide vital advice and support to a caller via our Helpline, often through multiple calls to explore their queries and concerns.

£180 could fund a researcher for one day, allowing them to carry out ground-breaking research into inherited retinal dystrophies.

£2,000 could give a researcher access to a state of the art microscope for a year, facilitating a whole range of investigations and experiments.

£10,000 could provide a project team with the cell cultures they need to explore the impact of genetic mutations on retinal cells, and assess the effectiveness of new therapies.
