Our Mission / Objective

To provide high quality services to international standard, which will increase the independence and quality of life for blind and vision impaired people and assist them to achieve their full potential within the community.

Our mission is the yard stick by which every decision is judged and the success of every service is measured. To this end, Guide Dogs Tasmania focuses on providing the very best training, support and advice to ensure that blind and vision impaired people can safely and independently move around and participate in the community.

Our Services

Guide Dogs Tasmania develop skills, optimise choices and create possibilities for Tasmanians who are blind or vision impaired. A multi-disciplinary team provides training programs tailored to suit each client’s needs, age and skill level. Our key activities and services include:
Guide Dog Mobility – Training and monitoring of Guide Dogs from eight weeks to approximately 10 years, to be used as a mobility tool for a blind or vision impaired Tasmanian.
Orientation and Mobility – Providing clients with the means to move safely and independently within their homes, schools and communities. Mobility aids include white canes, support canes or identification canes.
Life Skills – Supporting clients with activities that are essential for day-to-day living, including dressing, preparing food, eating, cleaning, reading and writing.
Adaptive Technology Training – Computers and other digital devices are made user-friendly through the addition of adaptive tools such as speaking and magnification software.
Children and Families – We provide information, resources, support and training so children can become self-determined adults who can make choices about careers, study, family and leisure.
