Welcome to CBS
Canberra Blind Society provides information, services and assistance to people who are blind or have a vision impairment in Canberra and the local region. Families, carers, community groups and businesses interested in learning more about people who are blind or have low vision can get support and information from us.
For more than 65 years we have provided a safe and welcoming environment through programs, community engagement and social events. We encourage our members and community to work together to assist in building independence for individuals and families that live with a wide range of vision impairments.
We are a not-for-profit charity and public benevolent institution that relies on the invaluable support of our community to operate our programs and support our clients. If you would like to volunteer please contact us today on (02) 6247 4580 or email email@example.com. Tax deductible donations go a long way to help us maintain diverse and engaging programs and events for people we support, follow this link to make a donation.
Canberra Blind Society is currently running a Giant Easter Egg Raffle to raise funds to support people with vision impairment. For more information click here.
