Vision Australia

Vision Australia provides a broad range of services for people who are blind or vision impaired.

Vision Australia works with people to enable them to experience life to its fullest. We offer a range of services that can be tailored to a person's level of vision and their individual needs.

Our services are provided by a dedicated team of people from a wide variety of professions, including more than 3,200 volunteers who freely give their time and skills to help Vision Australia provide its essential services.

Vision Australia assists clients in their homes, in our centres and in the community. We operate through regional and metropolitan locations in NSW, the ACT and Victoria. Our Information and Library Service is available to people who have difficulty reading printed material across Australia.
