Dundee Blind and Partially Sighted Society was founded in 1879 and is a local independent charity providing services to the citizens of Dundee, Angus, Perthshire and North East Fife.
DBPSS is working towards a world where all people who are blind or partially sighted enjoy the same rights, opportunities and responsibilities as everyone else.
We provide a wide range of services to people with a visual impairment and we advise Members on all aspects of support services in relation to their visual loss.
The Society is funded by donations and legacies - people ofter confuse us as being part of some national organisation e.g. RNIB or Guide Dogs for the Blind Association, but we are not part of these organisations and we are not funded by them.
DBPSS offers its Members a extensive calendar of social activities throughout the year, these include Bingo, Craft Club, Lunch Club, a Reminiscence Group, Games Afternoons, our very popular Armchair Aerobics, and weekly outings amongst others. These activities are aimed at ensuring that Members are able to participate in and benefit from activities similar to those enjoyed by their sighted peers. We have our own transport system which gives door to door service, making it more convenient and easier for Members to attend.
DBPSS recognises that the social activities offered are a vital lifeline to its Members, it offers them an opportunity to meet and engage with their contemporaries, participate in group outings and share experiences.
Although we offer these services to all, we are not a day care centre and cannot offer services to those that require personal care unless accompanied by a carer.
If you would like to become a Member, we would love to hear from you.
We also offer accessible room hire and catering to outside organisations who wish to hold events, please see our Meeting Rooms for Hire page for further information
