"I found my purpose in life again"
Sean is almost entirely blind as a result of a degenerative condition. For almost 15 years, he desperately struggled to secure employment, until he found an opportunity at RBLI. “At RBLI they see me as a person and see what I could do - the support is there from the very top to the bottom.”
“Since I have been here, it’s the happiest I’ve been. Life has truly been given a purpose again.”
"I can safely say that RBLI saved my life"
In 1982, former Welsh Guard Steve was serving on the Sir Galahad in the Falklands War when it was attacked – leaving 56 dead and Steve severely injured. He was then medically discharged and and unable to find work, until he found RBLI.
“They've given me a purpose in life - without them, I don’t know where I’d be. I became part of the family, and I’ve been here ever since.”
