Their fundamental pledge

Royal Blind is Scotland’s largest visual impairment organisation. We care, educate and employ blind and partially sighted people from across the UK. Royal Blind is a service provider and the funds that we raise are spent directly on caring for, educating and empowering visually impaired people of all ages.
