Highland BlindCraft was established over 150 years ago; a factory was set up to provide employment for blind people from throughout the Highland area. Prior to working in the factory many blind children were taught at the blind school. When they reached the age of 15, the children were transferred to work in the BlindCraft factory. The factory is still at its original premises, 39 Ardconnel Street, Inverness.
Today, as a registered Scottish charity, Highland BlindCraft is still run on the same founding principles. Although now included are people with a variety of disabilities from all over the Highlands and Islands.
In its full production factory in Inverness, Highland BlindCraft employs 19 highly skilled visually impaired and disabled people, along with 4 other able-bodied individuals. Designing, manufacturing and selling: beds, divans, mattresses, headboards and chairs to the highest standards.
Highland BlindCraft makes high-quality beds, but that’s not all it does. It’s all about making people feel involved, valued and cared for.
As a charity and a business, the employees’ wellbeing is at the very heart of the charities philosophy and practice. The workforce could almost be described as a family – a close family looking out for one another and supporting each other in their individual development and quality of life expectations.
