New South Wales

On this page you will find contact and useful information for branches and state divisions in NSW.

Ever wanted to know what is available to you as a person who is blind or vision impaired in your state? Our first state based toolkit was launched at the 2014 NSW State Convention. Other state based toolkits have now been developed. The state based toolkits outline financial support, information for parents and for students, transport entitlements, home and living, aids and equipment, health and wellbeing, leisure as well as advocacy and legal support.

Here is the NSW toolkit (Word doc)

You can also obtain a copy of the toolkit in your preferred format by contacting Blind Citizens Australia’s head office on (03) 9654 1400, or toll free, on 1800 033 660. Other state toolkits can be found at BCA State Based Toolkits
