Blind Community Advice
How we can help
We’re here to help
The Blind Foundation is here to help. If you, a family member or friend, is blind or experiencing sight loss, we can provide the support needed to help you face your future with confidence.
You might wish to access our popular Library Service or learn some tips to help at home. We also encourage independence through showing you how to get around. If you’re employed or seeking employment or study options, we can help with that too.
On the pages in this section, you can read about all of the support and services the Blind Foundation can offer you. Have a look around to find out more about what we do. If you have any questions, call our team on 0800 24 33 33 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
To become a client, you need to request our services. Once you’re set up, you’ll be able to access a wide range of support.
All about the collections and services available through the Blind Foundation library, including the BookLink digital lending and reading service, as well as how to join.
All about cultural support for Māori and Pacific clients and their whanau, family and friends.
Find out how we can help you adjust to sight loss, be independent, make the most of technology, and live a life without limits.
If you’re experiencing dual sensory loss, we’re here to help. Find out more here about how we can support you- wherever in New Zealand you are.
Disability Advisory Group needs more committee members we need some community members to advice on issues affecting the blind, the position requires committee members to interact with their local councils and Government and to provide polite but firm advise to councils, our online group wants to supplement traditional Council Disability Advisory Groups. We want to give our advise directly to councils and Government as well as to the council disability advisory groups.
We want to allow the public to take part, I have great concerns about the current council model of having closed disability advisory groups, this allows councils the chance to manipulate people into accepting minimal outcome which may endanger the disabled community while saving council a few dollars
Advocate for the blind wanted, please contact me to join our online Disability Advisory Group.
