Welcome to Dundee Blind & Partially Sighted Society
CORONAVIRUS UPDATE -
Wednesday 9th June 2021
The Society is still closed to visitors but please be assured that we are still operating and delivering the best service we can to our Members and those with a visual impairment, and we would welcome new Members too.
However, with the easing of restrictions and the roll out of the vaccine, I am hopeful that we will be in a position to welcome Members back to a phased return of activities in the Society from 19th July 2021. The number of Members we will be able to welcome back on each day will depend on the social distancing rules but all Members will be contacted prior to this date.
Our Resource Room is still available by appointment only or by letting us know what you require and we can deliver to your door.
Our staff are still available to contact on 227101, so if you are ever feeling like to need to chat to somebody we will still be at the end of the phone.
Please continue to take care and stay safe.
On behalf of the Board of Directors.
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 through our Facebook page 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.
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 one-to-one 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
