Guide Dogs Australia 2023 Survey – Research Findings

October 13, 2023

Guide Dogs Australia conducted research through EY Sweeney from February to March 2023 to better understand the needs of people around Australia with low vision or blindness when accessing their communities, including:

  • The challenges faced in public places
  • The usage and confidence of mainstream and assistive technologies.
  • Experiences with public transport.

622 people aged 18 years or older from around Australia completed the 2023 survey and Guide Dogs would like to thank everyone who has assisted and participated in the research.

Results indicate that people with low vision or blindness face numerous challenges in public places, which greatly impacts their confidence and ability to access and participate in their community.

The key research findings and insights are summarised in this report.
