For almost two centuries, RLSB has been working with blind and partially sighted young people to live life beyond sight loss. Thomas Lucas established The London Society for Teaching the Blind to Read in the city of London in January 1838, where he introduced his Lucas Type – an early Braille-like embossed text. The school slowly expanded moving to other locations across London, and a college and nursery were later established to allow RLSB to reach out to more young people. To help vision impaired people gain employment, RLSB also ran a home workers scheme and workshops through the 1900s to allow people to learn a trade and find work. Since then RLSB has continued to evolve and expand to meet the needs of vision impaired young people, attracting the support of generous volunteers and enjoys a rich alumni include Paralympians, writers, musicians and successful business people.
