The focus of our new strategy is to support more veterans with sight loss, supporting them and their family and their friends. We know that there are many veterans struggling with, or expecting to struggle, with their sight.

Our 3 pillars

Our pillars describe what we do, and how we work to support veterans and their families. 

Being Connected

We know that connections and communities matter. We help veterans to connect to the right information, services and local support. We are here to provide opportunities for our community to share experiences, support each other and celebrate comradeship, for those who enjoy this.

Being Independent 

Helping veterans feel in control of their lives is important. We are here to support the learning of new skills, provide the equipment needed, and build knowledge to enable veterans to live confidently and as independently as possible. 

Living Well 

It is important that veterans can live well with their sight loss. We help veterans understand and manage their condition and to provide support for their physical, emotional and financial wellbeing, so veterans, their families and their friends can carry on.

Sight Scotland Veterans Strategy 2021

Sight Scotland Veterans has launched our new strategy, setting out how we will work over the next three years.

Sight loss destroyed my confidence. At first I was hiding in the house but Sight Scotland Veterans never gave up on me and kept encouraging me. Without their support I would have been absolutely lost. Everyone has been so supportive and gradually brought me back to life. They have taught me cooking skills adapted to sight loss to help me keep independent at home. They even helped me to experience cycling again. The centre is expertly run and the people care deeply about what they’re doing. I can’t praise it enough.
