What We Do

Royal Blind School pupils at xmas show Royal Blind is Scotland’s largest vision impairment organisation. Our vision is to see a community in which blind and partially sighted people, including those who have other disabilities, are fully included and lead fulfilling lives. 

We operate only in Scotland and care for, educate and employ blind and partially sighted people from across the country, with occasional referrals from the wider UK. 

We are wholly separate from the RNIB, although we work in close partnership.

Supporting blind and partially sighted people of all ages

We support people of all ages:

We also run the Scottish Braille Press, which provides large print, audio and braille transcription for individuals and businesses across the UK. 

Our sister charity, Scottish War Blinded, gives free support to ex-service men and women, no matter if they lost their sight during or after service.
