Royal National Institute of Blind People Scotland (RNIB Scotland)

Registered Charity Number: 226227 , SC039316


We’re the Royal National Institute of Blind People (RNIB), one of the UK’s leading sight loss charities and the largest community of blind and partially sighted people.


RNIB Scotland works on behalf of 170,000 people in Scotland with sight loss, delivering services our members need and campaign for their civil and welfare rights. We support children, young people and adults with sight loss to live full and independent lives, and work with others to help minimise preventable sight loss.


RNIB recognises everyone’s unique experience of sight loss and offer help and support for blind and partially sighted people – this can be anything from practical and emotional support, campaigning for change, reading services and the products we offer in our online shop.


We’re a catalyst for change – inspiring people with sight loss to transform their own personal experience, their community and, ultimately, society as a whole. Our focus is on giving them the help, support and tools they need to realise their aspirations.


Everyday 250 people begin to lose their sight. RNIB has a crucial role to play in creating a world where there are no barriers to people with sight loss. We want society, communities and individuals to see differently about sight loss.


Right now, we can only reach one in three of the people who need our help the most.  

All of our services rely on voluntary income and a third is only possible thanks to people remembering us in their Will. We can transform the lives of people with sight loss, so that their future is full of opportunities to achieve their potential. Legacies help us create a world that sees what people with sight loss can do, not what they can’t.
