Scottish War Blinded Annual Report 2015

100 years ago our charity was formed as a result of soldiers being blinded by poisonous gas attacks in the First World War. Today Scottish War Blinded provides free support to veterans of the armed forces who have a serious visual impairment, no matter when or how sight loss has occurred, promoting positive well-being and independence. Veterans anywhere in Scotland can become part of our welcoming and active community and receive practical support of many kinds, at times when they need it. In this report you will find a wealth of quotes, stories and pictures that paint a moving record of lives changed by our work.

We are now entering our next phase of development. We have plans to construct a new centre in Paisley, which will build on the success of the Linburn Centre, offering an opportunity for members in the West to benefit from more of our services. At the Linburn Centre we are currently constructing a multi-purpose hall and four new bungalows for members.
