Are you a veteran experiencing sight loss? 

Or do you know someone who is? 

Scottish War Blinded supports blind and partially sighted ex-service men and women and their families, helping them regain independence and confidence after sight loss. 

To become a member, it doesn't matter why someone's vision is impaired, or when they began to lose their sight.

The majority of our members have lost their sight many years after their service due to age, or a range of medical conditions such as Macular Degeneration or Glaucoma. 

Membership of Scottish War Blinded is free and is available to anyone  in Scotland who has:  

  • served in the Armed Forces
  • completed National Service
  • been in the Reserves
  • been in the Merchant Navy under Navy command
  • and/or served in the Queen Alexandra's Royal Army Nursing Corps. 

 Support for members:

 Can include, but is not limited to: 

Our person-centred approach sees each veteran as an individual, and their point of view as at the heart of the work we do with them.

Call us today on 0800 035 6409 to find out how we can help.
