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.

QBA UPDATE

January 2022

 

As a result of the unfolding COVID-19 pandemic our office at Annerley will be temporarily closed. Our online store is still open and our handling timeframes will not change.

Our priority is to ensure that our staff, members, customers and the wider community remain safe and healthy.  We hope to re-open our office as soon as it is recommended to do so by the QLD Government.

If you need to contact us, please email info@qldblind.org.au or leave a message on our answering machine 07 3848 8888.  We will endeavour to respond to you as soon as possible.

We apologise for the inconvenience and thank you greatly for your patience during these unprecedented times. Once we return to our office we will post an update.

We hope you take care of yourselves and your loved ones.

From the Board of Management and Staff at the Queensland Blind Association Inc.
