About the Company
The needs we fulfil : There are over 1.7 million registered blind people in the UK but many others who have some sight, still have difficulty in reading, especially the small print that much information is presented in. We fulfil the following needs: A) Preparation and transcription of commercial and government literature into audio formats. B) Provision of work experience through Employment Service programmes since 1985 and also through the School Work Experience programme (Over 1000 long-term unemployed, able bodied and disabled people have benefited from this). There were 428 blind and partially sighted people registered in East Dunbartonshire in 2010 and 34,492 registered in Scotland. The RNIB advises that there are a great many more people who are not registered and put the number closer to 188,000 people in Scotland and 1.7 million in the United Kingdom. Our Mission : In all our actions we recognise that without listeners to our magazines and newspapers we, as a Scottish charity, cannot function. We work to ensure that volunteers, trainees and paid members of staff are treated with equal and reciprocated respect and understanding. We work to ensure the maximum return for all the resources invested in the organisation.
