This Christmas, don’t just give a gift, change a life!

At this special time of year, it’s important to remember that some people see the world a bit differently.

When children have access to Braille, they are more likely to achieve higher education, employment and their life goals.

Please help us to help them by donating at

Braille continues to be the most common form of tactual reading and writing. Audio information is not sufficient for literacy. Children and adults who are blind still need a literacy tool. They still need to learn to read, spell, punctuate and interpret written language just like everyone else so that they can succeed at study and work. You can’t learn spelling and punctuation from audio text; it’s as simple as that.

QBWA (Braille House) is a not-for-profit organisation which began in 1897. Our mission statement is: Access to braille for everyone, to empower people of all ages who are vision impaired.


Braille House relies on donations that allow us to continue our important work and to provide services and support the needs of children and adults who are blind or have low vision in Australia. The more funds we raise, the more we are able to help.
