Who we are

The Scottish Council on Visual Impairment (SCOVI) is an umbrella organisation committed to promoting equality and opportunity for people affected by serious sight loss across Scotland.

Its predecessor, the Scottish National Federation for the Welfare of the Blind (SNFWB) was formed in 1917 as a link between Institutions and Societies for the blind. 

In 2017 SCOVI celebrated its 100th year, find out more about the history of SCOVI.

Join SCOVI now to build a louder, more diverse voice for the Scottish vision sector.

Our trustees help shape SCOVI. Find out more about our Trustees and Staff.
