Helping you maximise your income

Living with sight loss can mean that you have all sorts of extra expenses. We have currently received funding to offer benefits advice in certain parts of the country.

Our advisers can help you to claim what benefits and entitlements you might be eligible for.

How we can help

Our Advice Plus service provides assistance on working age benefits and entitlements for people aged 16-64 and living in Edinburgh, Forth Valley and Ayrshire. To access this service, call 0131 652 3140.

If you live in Edinburgh and the Lothians, we can also advise and help you with non-working age benefits. Please call 0131 652 3140 or e-mail

Our advisers there can help you to claim any benefits and entitlements you might be eligible for, complete claim forms, register as blind or partially sighted and assist and represent you at benefit appeals. They can also advise you on other services for blind and partially sighted people in your area, and on other organisations which can provide assistance.
