Guide Dogs Victoria

Guide Dogs Victoria is a large-scale charity established in 1962. Their main activity is registered as disability services primarily serving early childhood - aged under 6 children - aged 6 to under 15 youth - 15 to under 25 adults - aged 25 to under 65 adults - aged 65 and over families people with disabilities.

At Guide Dogs Victoria, we provide vital support for Victorians with low vision or blindness. We have done since 1957. Since then, our services have grown far beyond just the dogs themselves to include a wide range of community initiatives, and training and education programs. We work to ensure people with low vision or blindness are active and involved members of the community. We do this by teaching practical skills to help children and adults reach their personal potential: regardless of when or how they became affected by low vision or blindness. These skills are developed under our Orientation & Mobility training programs and with the support of Occupational Therapists.
