    Description

    We provide direct, individualised and group-based services to more than 4,000 clients each year. Our clients range from newborn babies to seniors in their nineties and their families and carers.

    Our services help people to:
    Minimise the effects of vision loss and remain independent
    Achieve the highest level of participation in daily life consistent with their expectations, abilities and desires
    Bring about change in society that promotes this level of participation.
    Confidence, wellness and connection underpin our holistic approach to providing these services. We believe in a service and working environment that promotes excellence, honesty, dignity, respect, integrity, courtesy and fairness.

    Our vision is that people who are blind or vision impaired share a quality of life equal to other Western Australians.

    Our mission is to maximise the quality of life of people who are blind or vision impaired by building confidence, promoting wellness, and creating connection.

    Approximately 25% of our clients live in regional areas of the State. Our services are provided from our main office in Victoria Park, through regional offices located in Albany, Bunbury, Geraldton and Mandurah, and through visiting service programs in other rural areas of the State.
