What We Do

HERIB stands for “Hull & East Riding Institute for the Blind”

We provide free, specialist support for children and adults who have sight loss through a wide range of services.

Our resource centre

We tailor our support to each individual's needs taking into account their unique requirements.

We deliver our services primarily within the community as well as at our centre on Beverley Road, Hull and several other locations across the East Riding.


We currently support around 2,500 visually impaired local people across the East Riding.



We are a registered charity which receives no government funding and relies solely on donations and bequests to fund our vital services.

It costs around £2,100 each day to operate our services.
