About us

Guide Dogs NSW/ACT is the leading provider of Guide Dogs and orientation and mobility services that enable people with impaired vision to get around their communities safely and independently.

Each year our highly trained Orientation and Mobility specialists work with around 4,000 people of all ages to help them achieve their mobility goals.

Guide Dogs NSW/ACT relies heavily on generous donations from the people of NSW and the ACT to fund our services. Less than 10% of our income comes from government funding, including NDIS.

Guide Dogs NSW/ACT is a Registered Provider under the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS).  As well as connecting participants to support providers, we can help NDIS participants with the co-ordination of supports on their individual plans.

Our Mission

To empower people with vision loss to actively participate in their communities. 

Our Vision

Vision loss will not limit independence.

Our Purpose

We see beyond sight loss:

  • Guiding our clients to independence
  • Seeking new ways to prevent blindness
  • Creating connected communities

Beyond is where we are going.  Together is how we will get there.
