ABAPSTAS (the Association of Blind and Partially Sighted Teachers and Students) was founded in 1970 by visually impaired people with the primary aim of supporting students, teachers and lecturers. Since then, ABAPSTAS has grown into a national self-help and campaigning organisation with a strong voice. Their main focus is still on education and employment but their members now include people who have moved into careers other than teaching.

ABAPSTAS produce a magazine four times a year which gives information about the work of current campaigns, individual experiences as well as news and opinions. In addition to this they organise events during the year such as their conference.
