Working closely in the community to promote independence and empowerment to help the visually impaired lead more fulfilling lives
ABA aims to provide a variety of services and support for the BAME community that enriches the lives of our services users and empowers them. We ensure that the support and services we deliver are flexible and accessible for all visually impaired people within the BAME community by regularly listening to feedback from our service users. We strive to promote choice and independence while reducing stigma and overcoming barriers that people with visual impairments often face. We also offer services to reduce social isolation and to improve the health and wellbeing of an individual. We take part in events to raise awareness of issues that affect people with sight loss in BAME communities and aim to be both informative and supportive. We also provide support to carers and families of the visually impaired, offering advice, helpful information, and more. Our goal is to provide support, advocacy, and access to services for all those across Leeds affected by sight loss in the BAME community to improve lives and promote independence.
Losing your sight can be a frightening and isolating experience that can change your whole world. Everyone deserves to have access to the proper support and resources during this difficult and life-changing experience. At The Association of Blind Asians, we are committed to ensuring that no one in the BAME community slips through the cracks. We understand that everyone’s situation is unique, so we aim to tailor our support to suit each individual’s needs to improve their wellbeing, build confidence, and promote independence.

Our wealth is given by Allah and it becomes our responsibility to share our privilege and excess wealth with those that are not so fortunate. Zakat is how we do that. The word Zakat relates to cleanliness, growth, blessing and praise and is important because it benefits both the individual, those they support and the society. Zakat is both a physical and a spiritual act.
