Blind Citizens NZ is one of the country’s oldest advocacy organisations in the disability sector, (founded in 1945). It is New Zealand’s largest, generic, blindness consumer (disabled people’s) organisation. Our philosophy: to make “a blind bit of difference” as “blind people speaking for ourselves”. Our role: to advocate on behalf of our members and blind, deafblind, low vision, and vision impaired people living in New Zealand in general to: Government; Providers of blindness and disability-specific services (including the Royal New Zealand Foundation of the Blind / Blind Low Vision NZ); Providers of services in general, where blind people have particular requirements that should be taken into account.
