Dundee Blind and Partially Sighted Society was founded in 1879 and our mission statement is to work 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 who reside within Dundee and the surrounding areas, and we also offer a full social activities timetable throughout the year. We also provide door to door transport!
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.

The Co-operative Bank are proud to be the main sponsorship partner of the Wonderful Organisation supporting charities to make a difference by ensuring 100% of donations go directly to doing good. Learn more about the Bank’s values and ethics.
We recognise the selfless commitment made by fundraisers who train for months to run marathons, face their fears by jumping out of aeroplanes or open their homes to the community for charity bakes and coffee mornings. We believe the charities they support should receive EVERY PENNY from their fundraising efforts.
We also believe that Gift Aid (a scheme enabling charities to reclaim tax on donations made by UK taxpayers) should be directed IN FULL to the charities. This is why the Wonderful Organisation does not generate profit (or even cover costs) by deducting money from fundraisers' sponsors or Gift Aid contributions.
We are a non-profit organisation funded entirely by like-minded, philanthropic businesses. That's what makes us wonderful!
