The Scottish Braille Press has moved!

Posted: 26/03/2018 | ,

Today marks a historic day for the Scottish Braille Press as it opens the doors to its brand new state-of-the-art premises.

The Press, run by Royal Blind, operated from Craigmillar Park, Edinburgh, from 1954.

But due to a rapidly expanding client base and workforce, the decision was taken to move buildings.

The Scottish Braille Press will now operate in Robertson Avenue.

Head of Operations for the Scottish Braille Press, John Donaldson, said: “This is a very exciting time for the Scottish Braille Press, marking a significant new chapter in our history as a leading provider of accessible formats for vision impaired people.

“The move has been carefully co-ordinated to ensure there is no disruption to the day to day activity of the Scottish Braille Press.”

The Scottish Braille Press is a leading UK provider of accessible media, transcribing documents for a wide range of professional clients into Braille, Large Print and Audio formats. It produces magazines and books in Braille and is proud to be an employer that supports people with disabilities.

The Press celebrated its 125th anniversary in 2016.
