Supporting people with sight loss

Every day, 28 Australians are diagnosed with uncorrectable vision loss. Of those, 9 will become blind.
Through the support of people like you, we can assist more people with vision impairment and prevent avoidable sight loss for all people in NSW and the ACT. Together we can transform lives by enhancing the independence and mobility of Australians living with vision loss.
 
If you or someone you know are affected by sight loss or vision impairment,
please contact us to see which of our services could help you.
