Royal Blind Annual Report 2018

This has been a milestone year in the history of Royal Blind in which we embarked upon several new and exciting projects. The Royal Blind School became the provider of the vision impairment service for an entire local authority, bringing our expertise and care to 58 new pupils across East Lothian. Our new care home in Paisley, Jenny's Well opened its doors in October 2017 and became Royal Blind's first ever service in the West of Scotland. After years of planning and research the Scottish Braille Press said goodbye to its historic home in Craigmillar and moved to new premises. In addition, as part of our mission to stand up for people with sight loss, we created a policy function and have begun work on campaigns to combat loneliness in people with a vision impairment and to close the attainment gap between blind and partially sighted pupils and their peers.
