Aid for the Blind QLD Inc. relies on donations from the public, local businesses and the Queensland community. Funds go towards maintaining the 40 units which are home to our low and no vision residents.
We provide 40 units for people with low or no vision, near the Brisbane CBD at a subsidised rate, so they can lead independent lives.
Each unit is fully self-contained with its own bathroom, kitchen and laundry. To learn more about the units, or how to qualify to join our community click here.
Aid for the Blind operates six 'Op Shops' selling clothing, shoes, cutlery, crockery, bric-a-brac, furniture and electrical goods.
Our Computer Club Mentoring Program encourages children with low or no vision to become familiar with computers and in particular to learn how to touch type.
