As we get closer to Christmas, we think about those that we love and those who need help in our community and this is a perfect time to give a gift that will last a lifetime.
Braille House is a Not-for-profit organisation that transforms the lives of vision impaired people by producing and giving access to reading material and other tactual resources through our extensive library of books, maps and more.
Your kind donation this Christmas helps us to grow and maintain Braille House as a Centre of Excellence in the production and teaching of Braille; We are a hub of activity providing expert tuition and tactual reading materials to people who are blind or have low vision.
Sally Balwin – General Manager of Braille House said “Since 1897, Braille House has been an important part of life for all people who are blind or have low vision and this important work continues today. Christmas is a time when people are able to help those that are blind or have low vision by supporting our 2018 Christmas Appeal”
