The Australian Blindness Forum (ABF) is a not-for-profit organisation which operates as the peak body representing people who are blind or vision impaired in Australia. Its works to influence the policy agenda of governments and to raise awareness of blindness and vision impairment issues within the sector and beyond.
The ABF is funded by contributions from its members which include major blindness agencies across Australia and the consumer group Blind Citizens Australia. We are a member of the World Blindness Union , and through this membership a member of the World Blindness Union Asia Pacific.
