What is 'RP Fighting Blindness'?

Boy Wearing A Red Jumper

RP Fighting Blindness was founded in 1975 by a number of people with retinitis pigmentosa (RP). The group was concerned at the lack of knowledge about RP in the medical profession, the lack of a treatment or cure, and the lack of support for people with RP, and so decided to do something about it.

RP Fighting Blindness has since evolved into a respected medical research charity and a nationwide organisation providing support and information. We remain grounded in our volunteer roots as we seek to help patients live with RP and fund cutting edge research into the causes of and potential treatments for the disease.

You can learn more about our work by downloading the Trustees' Annual Report & Accounts which is published in the resources section of this website.
