Partnership 'working together' is very important to Torch.  We welcome good working relationships with charities, sight loss agencies and more because we know that together we are stronger.  Torch has a range of different partners, associates and friends that we are proud to work with.  For example :

Biblica - Torch Trust along with other Christian organisations (Urban Saints and Livability) was a key partner in producing an accessible version of the NIrV.  This tailored made edition of the New Testament is designed specifically for individuals who find other version of the bible hard to access.  The language has been carefully adapted to suit individuals with a range of additional needs, illlustrations which serve to enhance understanding of the text and importantly larger font (16pt) on particular paper which enables individuals with sight loss or dyslexia to read the text more easily.  NIrV New Testament available on Eden 

RNIB - one of the UK’s leading sight loss charities and the largest community of blind and partially sighted people. Torch Trust works regularly in consultation with the RNIB sharing ideas and ensuring the best possible service for our clients.  Individuals who access the RNIB are able to be referred directly to Torch Trust resources and services.  Our regular radio show 'Reflections' is broadcast every Sunday on RNIB's Connect Radio.

Other partners include :

Churches for All - a dynamic network of several Christian disability organisations working together to ensure that Church is accessible and enjoyable for all. Torch is enthusiastic participant and proud member of this partnership. Follow the link to see a list of other consortium members and to access their websites.

Blind Veterans - Torch Trust regularly works in partnership with Blind Veterans through our Holiday and Retreat Centre.  Guests on particular holidays can benefit from access to the Brighton centre.  Blind Veterans offer support for anyone who has served in the Armed Forces, or who has done National Service, and who is now living with significant sight loss.  If this applies to you ring Torch on 01858 438260 or contact Blind Veterans directly
