At Sight Scotland, we understand that there is no place like home. That's why our homes are unique, and provide the support which is right for those who choose to live there.

Our Forward Vision service provides residential care for 14 young adults who are blind or visually impaired, and have additional disabilities. 

We recognise that young adults with complex needs benefit from ongoing support and care to achieve their ambitions and goals. Our personalised care encourages independent living skills and full participation in daily life choices.

Set in the heart of Morningside, our home is close to shops, cafes and our team strive to get involved in the local community. So whatever your interests, there's always something to get involved in.

    Jamie's story

    "Jamie has boundless energy, so he loves making use of Forward Vision’s facilities.

    "As well as a visual impairment, Jamie has Autism Spectrum Disorder. Routine is very important to him.

    "To support his wants and needs, care staff take Jamie to visit Forward Vision’s sensory garden almost every day. He often uses his walker to visit the multi-use games area too.

    "Jamie enjoys spending time in the water.  Each week, residential care workers take Jamie to Forward Vision’s on-site hydrotherapy pool.

    "Forward Vision’s excellent facilities enable men like Jamie to do the activities they enjoy and to love the place they live."
