Scottish War Blinded

We give free support to ex-service men and women, no matter if they lost their sight during or after service. 

If you or someone you know could benefit from Scottish War Blinded’s activities and support, call us free today on 0800 035 6409 or contact us online

Support can include:

  • Rehabilitation and training to adapt to sight loss
  • Grants for equipment to assist with independent living 
  • Funded respite care 
  • Home modifications 
  • Sports, recreation and social activities.  

The majority of veterans currently benefiting from our services have developed sight loss as a result of age related sight loss, such as macular degeneration.
