Our 2017 Diamond Jubilee Year was a wonderful year in so many ways. So much of it was thanks to the assistance all of our generous supporters.

Thank you to our supporters for helping us breed 140 puppies.

– Thank you for enabling us to achieve 272 working dog partnerships

Only 9% funding from government

Without ongoing financial support from our friends, Guide Dogs Victoria cannot work effectively. Without support, we cannot provide Victorians living with blindness or low vision with high quality training and support to maximise their independence. After all, our funding from government amounts to only 9% of our total annual budget.

I can assure you, everyone at Guide Dogs Victoria really appreciates your support.

It is only with contributions from our supporters that we are able to train more and more of our specially bred puppies. As you well know, Guide Dogs make a world of difference to the lives of many individuals. Yet, the total training of each Guide Dog costs over $50,000.

For the year ahead, we are committing ourselves once again to provide people living with blindness or low vision with the resources they so desperately need. Our role is to ensure they reach their personal potential.

We work individually with each one of our clients, to teach them practical skills. We give them the confidence to reach their own personal goals. Through donations, it is the community who makes this vital work happen.
