What we do

Our mission

Our mission is for blind and partially-sighted people throughout Scotland to lead independent and included lives.

Our purpose

Our purpose is to raise awareness of how blind and partially-sighted people are discriminated against; and to work with our members and other bodies for positive change.

We do this by:

  • Supporting the work of our members.
  • Organising and facilitating regular meetings and conferences which offer informative training and educative opportunities for members.
  • Liaising with and informing relevant external bodies.
  • Endorsing and/or supporting relevant campaigns.
  • Promoting, supporting and/or assisting relevant research.
  • Recruiting new members.

We also hold a two-day residential conference each year.
