About our street collections

Our street collections – Guide Dog Puppy Appeal and Blind Low Vision Week – play a vital role in funding these practical and emotional support services.

We are looking for volunteers to coordinate collections in their community. If you’re organised, friendly, and approachable, then we need you.

Online Registrations for Blind Low Vision Week have now closed

But we still need your support! You can still support New Zealanders who are blind, deafblind or low vision have access to the services and support they urgently need.
