VisionPK was first established in 1866 as Perth and Kinross Society for the Blind.

Over 150 years later, the name may have changed but we continue to provide support and services to people in Perth and Kinross who have a sensory impairment. 

We are a registered charity (Scottish Charity Register number SC001152) and is a Company limited by Guarantee, No 205004; Registered in Scotland.

Today, VisionPK provides a range of specialist services for those who are visually impaired, D/deaf, deafened or hard of hearing.

These services includes rehabilitation and habilitation services; specialist equipment assessment and provision; information, advice and support; volunteering opportunities; fundraising opportunities and activities, groups and clubs.

We provide statutory services on behalf of the council and hold and maintain the register for blind and partially sighted people in Perth and Kinross.
