Volunteer Vacancies

Board Member

We are looking for three new Board Members to join Sight Scotland and Sight Scotland Veterans to work with us to meet our ambitious new strategy of reaching as many people with sight loss as possible across Scotland, no matter what their age or stage of visual impairment.

Our aim is that no-one should face sight loss alone. At Sight Scotland we already offer expert care, education and support but we want to do more by reaching out in new ways across all of Scotland to many more communities and people with sight loss. Sight Scotland Veterans supports around 1,400 veterans, providing innovative and valuable support to keep them independent through our outreach service, rehabilitation and activity centres.

Our Board plays a key role in supporting our strategic direction and ensuring good governance, supporting us as we work to meet our ambitious new strategy, therefore it is essential that you have an interest in better outcomes for people with sight loss.

We are particularly keen to see applications from those with strategic level experience in one or more of the following areas:

  • Community Engagement or Co-production
  • Equality, Diversity and Human Rights
  • Additional Support Needs or Visual Impairment Education
  • Knowledge and Understanding of Veterans’ Issues
  • Human Resources / Organisational Development
  • Fundraising
  • Digital Transformation
  • Property
  • Medical Research

Please click on Apply Now for more information and to apply for this rewarding, exciting opportunity to help improve the lives of people living with sight loss across Scotland.

Sight Scotland and Sight Scotland Veterans are sister charities and are the new names for Royal Blind and Scottish War Blinded. Board Members are Trustees of both organisations.
