There’s no doubt this is a worrying time for all of us. But here at seescape, we wanted to let you know that we are doing everything we can to keep you – and our staff – safe.

We are closing our office at Wilson Avenue, Kirkcaldy from Tuesday, 24th March 2020 until further notice. Calls will be diverted to a member of staff and if required a member of our support services team will contact you to offer information and advice.

Please continue to follow updates on our website on facebook /seescapefife and twitter /seescapefife

We’re keeping a close eye on all developments and following the Government’s guidelines. We will keep you updated regularly.
Carl Hodson CEO


Who we are

seescape is the new operational name of Fife Society for the Blind.  After 150 years of serving those with a sight impairment in Fife, we decided it was time to refresh our name to take us in to the 21st century.

We see our mission as expanding horizons for people with sight impairment in Fife.

We aim to help make sight impaired people’s lives more fulfilled by empowering them to live and interact with their families, their communities and surroundings in a positive way.

A charity with more than 150 years’ experience, seescape provides people with sight impairment with access to support services, new technology and a community of friends.

Our commitment to our clients is that we will:

  • listen and act according to their needs
  • campaign for better services for people with a sight impairment
  • be a catalyst for change, and
  • work in partnership to deliver sustainable projects

Everyone is so helpful, positive friendly and professional. The help I have received over the past months has helped me through the biggest crisis I have had since my diagnosis. I cannot thank you enough.

Update from RNIB - Talking books
RNIB are still operating our talking book service and are doing our best to ensure that all our members during these tough times have something to read.

Please note we are still accepting new registrations, however, these are taking longer to process at the moment due to the increased demand we are receiving. Unfortunately we have had to suspend our braille and giant print book loan service for the foreseeable future.

If we can be of further assistance please do not hesitate to contact us.

Please respond direct to the Helpline at or: 0303 123 9999

We are extremely disappointed and saddened our windows have been vandalised once again.

As a local charity which has been a lifeline to the Fife community for the past 150 years, our staff are committed to providing a vital service – even more so in these difficult times.

We can not afford to keep spending money replacing windows to make premises secure.

Our CCTV footage has captured the incident and the vandals are known to the Police.
