Autumn 2020 edition:

Welcome to our first edition of iSight as Sight Scotland.

Royal Blind changed its name to Sight Scotland on 8 October 2020 and we are delighted to share our news with you.

Royal Blind has been leading the way in caring for people who are blind or partially sighted for 227 years. Our heritage makes us what and who we are today and we must continue to evolve to keep our heritage alive.

Our new name represents a new period of growth, focusing us on the issue which matters most: tackling vision loss together. As Sight Scotland, we aim to help people with sight loss in every community across Scotland, working in partnership with local authorities

Happy reading!
