Some of Adelaide’s top dogs in business are going on a blind date this month – for a good cause.
Fifteen visionary business men and women will put on blindfolds to go about their business for one day in March to help raise funds for Guide Dogs SA/NT.
As well, Boss’ Blind Date will help raise awareness of the challenges faced by people with vision loss and ways that workplaces can lead the way in accessibility.
If you or a loved one has a vision or hearing loss or a young child with autism, the friendly staff at Guide Dogs SA/NT are ready to join you on the National Disability Insurance Scheme journey. Our NDIS savvy team understands the system and the opportunities.
We're at some Expos in February and March so you can meet us and chat about your needs. The free community information expos are open for people with disability, family and disability support workers as well as people working in the disability sector.
Hear the future and prepare for it – it’s World Hearing Day!

During National Hearing Awareness Week, Guide Dogs SA/NT urges you to protect your hearing.

Happy Chinese New Year! It's the Year of the Dog and our puppies think that's pretty pawsome. Dog are loyal and honest, amiable and kind, cautious and prudent. Due to having a strong sense of loyalty and sincerity, dogs will do everything for the person they think is most important. Reckon that sounds like a Guide Dog.
When you choose to insure your pet with Guide Dogs Pet Insurance, you play a vital role in ensuring the ongoing breeding, training and placement of much needed Guide Dogs for Australians who have experienced vision loss.
