Help us to improve the lives of Queenslanders with low vision and blindness

We rely on the support of people like you to make a difference to people with low or no vision. Every contribution is vital to help these Queenslanders access the services they need to simply do the ordinary things many of us take for granted. 

With your help, promising puppies can become life-changing Guide Dogs. People who are blind or vision impaired can go to work every day, visit the shops on their own and even cook dinner for their family. They can pick the kids up from school, have the chance to receive further education and navigate busy areas without fear.

They can do all of those things because of you. And that’s extraordinary.

A few Queenslanders we’ve been able to help

Tania and Kyle’s Story

My instructor teaches me to do all kinds of things, like catch public transport and get around the shops with my friends. We talk about the goals I’ve set for myself and then focus on trying to achieve them.

The Impact of our Pals

Having my Guide Dog ‘Tatum’ is almost the same as having the freedom of being able to see. He’s a great navigator.

Michael’s Story

“My Guide Dog ‘Libby’ makes difficult tasks so much easier. One of our most special moments together was when she helped me get around the Mater Hospital on my own while my wife had our baby.”
