United Kingdom

Support from charitable trusts registered in the UK.

Sightsavers is registered with the Charity Commission for England and Wales (Charity number 207544) and with the Office of the Scottish Charity Regulator (SCO038110).

We enjoy enormous support from charitable trusts based in the UK, with more than 450 gifts received from these sources in 2011. There are a number of ways to support our work, and with a sight-saving cataract operation costing, on average, just £17, even a modest donation can go a long way.

If you would like to make a substantial grant, and for your support to be restricted to a specific programme, we would be happy to discuss your philanthropic aims. Please contact Matthew Chambers, New Business Development Manager , at or on +44 (0)1444 446749.
