Our purpose

Life without limits – Kahore e Mutunga Ki te Ora

The Blind Foundation is New Zealand’s main provider of practical and emotional support for the 12,100 Kiwis who are blind or have low vision, enabling them to face their future with confidence.

With a vision of ‘Life without limits – Kahore e Mutunga Ki te Ora’, Blind Foundation staff around the country aim to enable people who are blind or have low vision to be self-reliant and live the life they choose.

We equip people with the skills needed to participate fully in society. This includes support in living independently, getting around, using technology, continuing to read and communicate, being socially active and staying in or looking for work.

The Blind Foundation’s vital work helping people with sight loss is only possible thanks to the generous support of the public.
