While the NDIS is a great step forward for many Australians, the support from this scheme is also capped at the age of 65. For example, 24 year-old Samantha and 68 year-old John both have low vision, have undertaken mobility training and are now applying for a Guide Dog.

Under NDIS funding, Samantha will be eligible to have her Guide Dog funded but John is ineligible due to being outside the age range of the scheme. We don’t want John to miss out on the opportunity to have a Guide Dog, so with the community’s ongoing support, we will fund John’s dog through traditional fundraising.
