About Torch

Torch Trust : Christianity and Sight loss

Torch Trust is a Christian charity working together to enable people with sight loss to have fulfilling Christian lives.

We do this through offering services and resources to people with sight loss.

We provide Christian literature in large print, braille and audio both to buy and through our free lending library.

We offer Sight Loss Friendly Christian holidays using Christian Centres around the UK.

We work with churches, Christian organisations and sight loss professionals offering our experience, training, advice and guidance.
