Promoting Understanding ImageSupporting the Blind in Queensland

WELCOME TO QUEENSLAND BLIND ASSOCIATION INC.

The Queensland Blind Association Inc. was established by a small group of Blind people in Brisbane in February 1939, just prior to the outbreak of the second World War. Over 80 years since our inception, the focus of our Association remains the same: to provide real assistance to our legally blind members so they can live in a safe social environment and in comfort within the community.
