Our first facility opened in 1825 in Edinburgh and welcomed an initial intake of 25 women living with sight loss ranging from working age to older age.

Our commitment to care provision hasn’t wavered since, as we continue to provide extraordinary specialist care, every day. https://t.co/2inG8Yg6rE

One of our biggest areas of growth to support blind and partially sighted has been through our residential care services. Did you know, we first started providing care 195 years ago – pretty amazing, right?! https://t.co/dTn051pwik

I challenge you to enjoy a TV programme using audio description. Immerse yourself in the world of audio and experience a TV programme or film from the #SightLoss perspective you never know you might get a lot from it. @sibbymeade @guidedogs @seandilleyNEWS @TPTgeneral https://t.co/oMSjE7nduv

We've grown from humble beginnings as a charity providing support to blinded soldier returning from WW1. We have evolved over the past 100 years & now help blind & partially sighted veterans no matter how or when they lost their sight, including those who did National Service. https://t.co/M9h9jLeayP

To put into context just how long we’ve been around, in the same year Royal Blind was founded Robert Burns wrote the song "Robert Bruce's March to Bannockburn", also commonly known as "Scots Wha Hae" – who else’s mind is blown right now? 🤯

We've grown from humble beginnings as a charity providing support to a handful of blind & partially sighted people. We were founded by Rev Dr D Johnston, Dr T Blacklock & Mr D Miller in 1793, making us the 3rd foundation in the world dedicated to improving lives of blind people! https://t.co/1MR5InTo9j

What do the secret tactile patterns on British streets mean? This is my latest instalment on @tiktok_uk thought I would share it with you all. Blind people can be so independent 💛 #mobilityskills #blind #accessibility @RNIB @LondonVision @CombatBlindness @GuideDogs https://t.co/sDokHyfn45

We are loving @lucyedwards Tik-Toks as she showcases how she lives independently, along with sharing really useful information about mobility and accessibility! A great way to teach others - well done Lucy! https://t.co/hp146P2d8m

Our new name represents and embraces a period of change and growth – as we grow to tackle the impact of vision loss together. Keep a look out for our posts as we share our journey to date, and reveal our new name on the 8 October!

We are so excited to announce that on 8 October – our name will change! Over the next 2 weeks we’ll be sharing highlights of our journey so far, ahead of revealing of our new name. Our heritage is so important to us, and it’s been a big decision to change our name. https://t.co/nVjPqr05iu

The survey takes around 5 to 10 minutes and asks about issues such as social distancing and support provided to people affected by sight loss and their families. If you are a person with visual impairment we would appreciate it if you could give us your views by taking part. 2/2

To help us make the case to the Scottish Government and local authorities for better support for people living with sight loss we are seeking the views of people with visual impairment through a short survey. https://t.co/Wzn0m1YF6h 1/2
