Royal Blind Annual Report 2017

2017 is a turning point for Royal Blind, as for the first time in our 224 year history we will be operating a substantial service outwith Edinburgh. Our new Jenny’s Well care home in Paisley opens in October, providing high-quality nursing care for older people with a visual impairment. This is a significant expansion in our delivery of care services, and it supports the community with the creation of over 100 jobs. In late 2016 we expanded our services for younger adults with disabilities and visual impairment with the establishment of Allermuir, providing community-based supported living with 24-hour professional care.

Royal Blind Annual Report 2015

The merger of the Royal Blind School’s two campuses has been completed, and all pupils and staff are now located in Morningside. The campus went through a major redevelopment, introducing new specialist classrooms, outdoor play areas and a flat for visiting parents and carers in times of need. The pupils have settled well, and are enjoying being together in one school. It has been a pleasure to watch our pupils work together, both those with complex needs and those who are more able, during school assemblies, concerts and events. The Royal opening of the school building was an excellent opportunity to introduce our new premises to everyone we work with.
