Caring for remote and regional areas
Our support extends far beyond the Adelaide region to include remote and regional areas of South Australia and the Northern Territory.
Throughout the year, our vision services team travels from Adelaide and Darwin, visiting communities at Mount Gambier, the Riverland, Yorke Peninsula, Whyalla, Port Augusta and Port Lincoln, as well as Katherine, Alice Springs and Tennant Creek.
We provide specialist vision services, including orientation and mobility training, assessments, equipment and education, to clients of all ages from varied cultural and linguistic backgrounds.
In the Northern Territory, remote health visits to areas like Nhulunbuy and Palumpa are coordinated with the support of Specialist Outreach NT who provide Guide Dogs with free chartered flights.
From Kangaroo Island to Wagait Beach, clients with access to our specialist equipment and support experience improved independence, community participation and a greater sense of wellbeing.
