Visibility Scotland is a national charity. We help and support anyone, of any age, living with a visual impairment across Scotland. Our aim is to help people with sight loss to live independent and fulfilling lives.
What we do
We are a charity supporting children and adults who are blind or partially sighted and live in Scotland. We also support families and carers of anyone affected by sight loss.
We can help you in lots of different ways whether you’ve just been diagnosed with sight loss or have been living with a visual impairment for several years. From support with the latest assistive technology to a listening ear at the end of the phone, we’re here to help you access the right support at the right time.
How can I help?
Every donation, big or small, will help us to provide life-changing services for people with sight loss. We wouldn’t be able to continue our vital work without the generosity of our supporters.
Host an office bake sale, sign up for a monthly donation or take part in a sponsored run. There’s a way for everyone to get involved!
Thank you for helping us change lives. Here are some of our recent achievements:
In 2021 we supported 2,345 people living with a visual impairment through our range of online, phone and face to face services.
Since the start of 2022 we've made 1,024 onward referrals for support. 348 of these have been to other Visibility Scotland services and 676 have been to partner organisations across Scotland.
We've had 32 visitors to our monthly wellbeing café since it launched at the start of the year. 'The Haven' is open on the last Tuesday of every month. Drop-in to our Glasgow office for a chat and some tasty, healthy food.
