For those people who are blind or low vision and are eligible for NDIS funding, it may be possible to allocate some of the core funds to bring a sighted guide on the trek for support. Please refer to your specific support requirements to know if this is available to you.
On the Seeing Eye Dogs: Bay of Fires Adventure you will have the exciting opportunity to participate in a physically challenging hike in our own beautiful backyard, while fundraising in support of people who are blind or have low vision to help them achieve the possibilities they choose in life.
For a person who is blind or has low vision, feeling isolated from others around you can be a daily part of life. This does not need to be the case. Seeing Eye Dogs are a vital part of achieving independence – apart from being a constant companion, they provide much needed guidance and mobility for people who would otherwise be unable to undertake day-to-day activities.
The funds you raise from the Seeing Eye Dogs: Bay of Fires Adventure will help care for and train pups to become Seeing Eye Dogs and make a big difference to Australians who are blind or have low vision.
We can’t thank you enough for supporting us on this incredible trekking challenge, and we can’t wait to have you on the team.
