We advocate for accessible and inclusive communities because we believe people with sight loss should be able to get around public spaces like any other member of the community, access the same information, and pursue the career of their dreams without unnecessary barriers. Age-related eye conditions in New Zealand are rising as our population ages and so we also want New Zealand to do better at taking eye health seriously.
All across New Zealand, from Cape Reinga to Bluff, we meet with people in their homes or at their local Blind Low Vision NZ office to find solutions together. Maintaining independence is important – so we support people to get around safely using a white cane, public transport or a guide dog, prepare meals, use technology, stay in employment, or connect with others.
Join us for an impactful cause! We're seeking enthusiastic Area Coordinators for the Guide Dog Puppy Appeal 2024, a significant annual street collection supporting Blind Low Vision NZ Guide Dogs.
The role involves collecting Blind Low Vision members from their home and driving them to a support group based in Kerikeri.
You Are Needed! We are looking for someone in the Kaitaia area who can assist in the gathering of members in the blind low vision community....
