Supporting people with sight loss
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.
In line with current Covid guidelines, we are in the process of re-introducing some of our face to face support services. In order to support the health and well-being of our staff, volunteers and the people we support, service provision will be by appointment only for the time being. To find out more about the services currently available please call us on 0141 332 4632 or get in touch by email.

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 2020 we supported 1,747 people living with a visual impairment through our range of services, many of which had to be delivered online or over the phone due to the pandemic.
We became the new provider for the Patient Support Service at the Princess Alexandra Eye Pavilion in April 2021. We've supported 363 people through the service since then.
We were delighted to receive a £10,000 grant from the Architectural Heritage Fund to carry out a feasibility study on our plans to redevelop our building in Queen's Crescent.
