GUIDE DOGS AUSTRALIA
Every hour of every day, an Australian family learns that their loved one will have severe or permanent sight-loss. Nine of these Australians will eventually go blind. It is estimated that there are over 450,000 Australians who are blind or have low vision and this number is expected to raise to significantly increase with an ageing population. 1
Guide Dogs Australia in collaboration with its state-based organisations, deliver essential services to children, teenagers, and the elderly who are blind or have low vision in every State and Territory across Australia. Our mission is to assist people who are blind or have low vision gain the freedom and independence to move safely and confidently around their communities, and to fulfill their potential.
