The cost of caring for one patient at the hospice is £25 a month.

Light for the Blind welcomes sponsors who can contribute however small an amount towards this.. For UK tax payers who donate under Gift Aid this reduces to £20 a month as the Trust can reclaim £5 per month tax from the Inland Revenue.

For those people who are already blind or suffer other disabilities there is the problem of how to earn a living. To help such people Light for the Blind runs a Welfare Centre where disabled  people are taught a trade such as making candles and communion Hosts. They  are given a good salary at the end of the month.
