Blind Consumer Organisations across Aotearoa, New Zealand are working collaboratively to support Kiwis living with sight loss during the COVID-19 crisis.
Together we are committed to connecting with our networks, checking in and offering support where needed. We know many people who are blind, deafblind, low vision or vision-impaired have limited or no access to technology so it is critical for us, and the organisations we work with, to check-in on the health and wellbeing of our clients and members who maybe feeling more isolated at this time.
We are here to support all Kiwis living with sight loss and if that applies to you, please know that you are not alone. Contact us or an organisation we work with for support:
