Fraser is blind.  He isn't able to read the same storybooks as his friends.

Sight Scotland’s specialist teachers taught Fraser to learn braille. Now, Fraser can read the fantasy and adventure stories he loves.

Fraser's family need support too, as raising a child with sight loss brings with it many challenges.

With your help, we can also help Fraser’s family support him. By donating £20.00, you help cover the cost of support for a family in need.

Please make a donation to help people with sight loss, as well as their families, get the support they need.

The difference your support will make

Our research shows that people with sight loss can lose their confidence and their self-esteem. Many struggle with day-to-day activities. Families have huge concerns about how to best support their loved ones, particularly their loves ones at diagnosis stage.

Our new Family Wellbeing Service provides key support and advice to people with vision loss, as well as their families. Support is available over the phone by calling our Family Support Line on 0800 024 8973

Your support makes an enormous difference. Donations from people, like you, enable people with sight loss to receive the support they need.

Please make a donation and support our services for families and people with sight loss.

Amanda's Story

At just 26, Amanda was losing her sight. She had been diagnosed with a rare eye condition called Stargardt disease. There’s no treatment and no cure. Faced with a lifetime of sight loss, Amanda was terrified. She wasn’t just worried for herself. She was also anxious at the thought of how she would cope as a parent.
