Your legacy can transform someone’s life

Your Gift helps us provide a range of services and programs to support Queenslanders living with low vision or blindness to find new independence to live the life they choose.

This may mean being matched with a Guide Dog, accessing orientation and mobility training to better navigate in the community, meeting with our psychologists or working with our Occupational Therapists to improve practical skills in the home.
