Where can services be accessed?

We’re dedicated to providing the right services for you, regardless of where you are in Queensland.

With six offices across the state and our full range of vital services on offer state wide, we are able to ensure all Queenslanders with low or no vision have access to life-changing support.

Most of our programs are delivered locally in the areas where people live and work every day. No matter where you live, our instructors can come to you so the support you receive is tailored to your needs and lifestyle in your own community.

If you are taking part in a Brisbane-based program, you can also stay in accommodation onsite at our Training Centre, to better experience the benefits of group training programs that may currently be unavailable in regional areas.
