Their fundamental pledge
Every hour in Scotland someone starts to lose their sight. It is scary, it is lonely and it changes lives. Our experience in sight loss means we are here for you, your friends and family. From the moment there is a diagnosis, for as long as you need us. They use their knowledge and experience to be a source of support and advice to give hope and courage to live life to the full.
Did you know...
There are over 180,000 people in Scotland with sight loss and fewer than one in five are offered emotional support to deal with their deteriorating vision.
We are a national charity and we've been dedicated to meeting the challenges of visual impairment for two centuries.
Our work includes; care, learning, information & advice provision, community support services, medical and social research, as well as providing documents in accessible formats like braille or large print.
What makes Sight Scotland different
They have adapted their approach over 228 years to ensure they're always providing the best care and support to people with sight loss, and their families. Their mission is to continue to provide this support now, and in the future, for as long as they are needed.
