Guide Dogs Queensland – Charity of the Month Recipient for June 2022
For more than 60 years, Guide Dogs Queensland has worked to enable a lifetime of independence, participation, inclusion and wellbeing for people with low vision or blindness and their families.
Vision loss can be a confronting and challenging experience that can leave people feeling isolated in their own communities. Limited vision impacts a person’s feelings of security, independence, social health and confidence as they navigate their community and undertake the daily tasks many of us take for granted.
A Guide Dog completely changes this and can totally transform a person’s life. They help their handler navigate the world and continue doing things like going to the shops, getting to work and moving through crowds safely and independently. But Guide Dogs also provide so much more than just mobility benefits. They can enhance social participation, and well-being, and encourage their handler to try new experiences and challenges.
