Help your clients take their next step

Telling someone they are going to lose their vision is never easy, but we’re here to provide as much support as they need after a diagnosis.

More than just dogs

While we’re known for our iconic Guide Dogs, we’re much more than just dogs. We offer a wide range of personally tailored services designed to help people of all ages navigate life with vision impairment.

We’ve helped thousands of individuals and families learn to manage vision loss, so we know no two journeys are the same.

Our support begins with ensuring every person has the support they need to cope with a diagnosis and understand vision impairment.

Then we explore the right options for them to help them gain the skills they need to complete daily activities and continue getting around their community safely and independently.

Vision loss shouldn’t impact quality of life. We do everything we can to ensure all Queenslanders have the support they need to manage sight loss and achieve their goals.

When should I refer?

Losing vision can be an emotional and frightening experience, so knowing where to refer the person for support after their diagnosis is essential.

Whether someone has just been diagnosed with a permanent and non-correctible eye condition or they have had a progressive change in their vision, we can help.

We’re passionate about providing support for all Queenslanders who need help with vision loss. If you’re ever unsure whether to refer someone, our experienced team are always on hand for a professional discussion.
