Today's Challenges for Australians who are blind or have low vision are significant. As the nation's leading provider of services to people who are blind or have low vision, Vision Australia embraces the responsibility of meeting these challenges with great passion and commitment.
For example, there are 300,000 Australians who are blind or have low vision. With an increasingly ageing population this number will grow to about 600,000 by 2020. This means while today 25 people have learnt they will lose their sight, in 10 years time 80 people a day will receive the same news. Vision Australia has committed itself provide services to 30% more clients over the next three years.How you can help
Vision Australia relies on community support to provide our range of free services to the growing number of Australians who are blind or have low vision.

It is a rewarding way for community groups, schools, workplaces, clubs and individuals to make a difference.Contact Us
