The Association for the Blind has served Victorians for more than 100 years. It began in 1895, when society was largely confused about capabilities and potential of people with vision impairment and their rights were few.
Today we are still protecting the right of blind people to live as independently as possible, however the overwhelming majority of our customers have some sight. Our new name recognises this and is more encouraging to people using our services for the first time.
