Other benefits and funding options

There are several other funding options available to people who have low vision or are blind. Whether you're seeking support at school, at work, or to live independently, we can help make sure that you're fully aware of any funding and benefits that you may be entitled to.

Government funding

The benefits system, such as Centrelink and Department of Human Services, can be complicated, so Vision Australia has created resources to help you navigate the system.
