Seescape Relaunch New Vision During 250 Days of Transformation

28th October 2022

Seescape, a leading visual impairment charity based in Fife, relaunched on Wednesday 26th October 2022 as part of their 250 days of transformation challenge.

Founded in 1864 as Fife Society for the Blind, Seescape’s transformation looks to build on their legacy of providing vital support to the community by increasing awareness of their life changing services and boost their capacity to provide them, as well as extending their reach across Fife.

Taking place at the new Seescape Visual Impairment hub in Glenrothes, the initial relaunch event showcased the charity’s refreshed brand identity as well as share a new set of company goals and values developed in collaboration with staff, volunteers, and service users. Attendees will have the opportunity to see and try some of the latest technology, in the charity’s new Tech Corner, provided by Seescape’s’ technology partner, Sight and Sound Technology.

In attendance alongside partners and supporters was Seescape’s Honorary President, former Prime Minister, The Right Honourable Gordon Brown, and Provost of Fife, Jim Leishman.

On the new set of charity goals, Mr Brown said: Although I’m delighted to have been Seescape’s Honorary President since 2015, my relationship with the charity runs much deeper, with my father serving on the Board of Management in the 1950s and my mother supporting the Kirkcaldy Ladies Committee. I’m proud to watch Seescape go from strength to strength over the years, remaining focussed on empowering visually impaired people in Fife, their families and their communities

On being a longstanding part of Fife’s history, Mr Leishman said: It’s an honour to be here today to officially open this new office and launch this new chapter in Seesape’s history, which has been part of The Kingdom of Fife’s history for the last 158 years

On our relaunch event, Seescape CEO Lesley Carcary said: We are over the moon to see so many of our supporters and partners here today – they play a vital role in our mission to enrich the lives and communities of people living with visual impairment across Fife

On the challenge of taking on 250 Days of transformation, Doug Stalker, Seescape chair said: I’m really proud of the team at Seescape for undertaking this ambitious transformation which I have no doubts will have a positive impact in the lives of people in Fife living with visual impairment
