Visibility Scotland Groups & Courses

Visibility Scotland runs a wide range of groups and courses which are free to attend.

We run locally based Peer Support Groups where you can come along, chat to others living nearby, learn some new skills or just have a cup of tea!  We also run Sensory Support Groups across Dumfries & Galloway, where a wide topic of issues are always up for discussion. You do not need to be registered blind or partially sighted to attend our courses – it is open to all age groups and you are welcome to bring along a family member, friend or carer.

We also run 6 Positive Outlook Courses every year. These three week courses are run in Glasgow and other local venues and aims to help people with sight loss by giving practical and emotional tips, helping you to train and develop your independence.
