Our mission

Welcome to Vision Australia. This is the story of who we are, what we stand for, what drives our passion and ultimately our success. Our story is unique. It highlights a mission brought to life by actions driven by our heads and our hearts. At the centre of our story are the people we support. Vision Australia’s mission is to support people who are blind or have low vision to live the life they choose. Our mission is brought to life by our actions.

Key principles

Our clients are at the centre of everything we do

We listen to our clients and build our services around their needs and aspirations. We trust our workforce to use their best judgement to support clients to achieve positive and measurable outcomes.

We advocate for social change so that people who are blind or low vision can live the life they choose

We actively strive to change the community’s perceptions about the capability of people who are blind or have low vision. We strive for equity and inclusion for people who are blind or have low vision in all areas of life.

We take a business-like approach to delivering on our purpose

We extend our impact by increasing the number of clients we support. We are responsible in how we use our resources.

Deliver the services our clients, their families and supporters need

We seek to make a measurable difference in the areas of education, employment, independence and social inclusion.
