For 230 years, we're proud to have supported people in Scotland to overcome the barriers of sight loss. 

We have come a long way since we were founded in 1793. We have grown from humble beginnings as a foundation providing meaningful work for a handful of blind and partially sighted people and have continued to evolve over the past two centuries to become the largest visual impairment organisation in Scotland.

We have been on quite a journey so far. By leaving a gift in your Will you can support us to achieve even more for many years to come. 

We see a future far beyond sight loss. We see a future where people with sight loss and visual impairment aren't met with boundaries and can lead fulfilling lives. We see a future where sight loss can be reversed. 

We have big ambitions, but we need your help.
