Charities by Category: Deaf / Blind
Created in 1991, the Israel Guide Dog Centre for the Blind was established to train and supply guide dogs to an increasing number of blind Israelis who were unable to obtain a dog from an English-speaking centre abroad. Hundreds of partnerships have now been created at our centre that is located not far from Rishon L’Zion at Beit Oved. Each partnership costs some 15,000 for the life long care of the guide dog, training and aftercare. A legacy or gift will help provide another pair of eyes to the growing number of blind persons who ‘look’ to us to help restore their independence and dignity.

Jewish Blind & Disabled (JBD)
Bittacy Hill, Mill Hill East
Jewish Blind & Disabled is the only charity dedicated to enabling people from the age of eighteen upwards, who have physical disabilities or impaired vision, to live independently with the dignity and choice that are so easy to take for granted.
One in five people in the UK faces a diagnosis of disability, with someone going blind every hour. Jewish Blind & Disabled restores their independence and hope for the future through their specially designed developments of state-of-the-art mobility apartments with resident house managers who are on site and on call round the clock, seven days a week.
As an independent charity that does not receive any government funding, Jewish Blind & Disabled is very grateful for your support.
Jewish Child’s Day has been providing support for disabled, neglected, abused and underprivileged Jewish children in the UK, Israel and worldwide for 70 years.
It provides the tangible items required – wheelchairs, life-saving medical equipment, hearing stimulus and special educational materials to name but a few. Jewish Child’s Day also ensures that Jewish children receive the bare essentials such as food and clothing.
Relying entirely on the generosity of the community and receiving neither government nor statutory funding, Jewish Child’s Day grants provide Jewish children throughout the world the chance to make a better life for themselves.

Fact: almost everyone who reads this will be confronted with the trauma of hearing loss at some time in their lives – or most certainly have a loved one who will. Deafness can totally isolate people from family, friends and colleagues.
For over 60 years, JDA has provided professional, personalised care and support for everyone with a hearing loss. We support families after the devastating diagnosis of their newborn baby’s deafness; provide invaluable support services to help people of all ages adapt to traumatic changes as they lose their hearing, and give compassionate care to older Deaf and Deafblind people – who may have dementia and are vulnerable to abuse and cruelty – through daily life, illness, hospitalisation, bereavement and end-of-life care.
