SCOVI is an umbrella organisation that links and supports statutory and voluntary services for and of vision impaired people in Scotland.

Our mission is for people with vision impairment throughout Scotland to lead independent and included lives.

We work towards this goal by informing and supporting our members, promoting member activities, encouraging collaboration and raising awareness to improve opportunities, rights, equality and inclusion of visually impaired people in Scotland.
