Guide Dogs has been voted Australia’s Most Trusted Charity for the second consecutive year, in the annual Australian Reader’s Digest Most Trusted Brand poll.
Respondents to the survey acknowledged Guide Dogs for its industry-leading services, including providing guide dogs to Australians who are blind or vision impaired for over 60 years.
Dr. Graeme White, CEO of Guide Dogs NSW/ACT, said the award was a reflection of the support from the charity’s donors and volunteers. “We wouldn’t be in a position to receive this award without the assistance and continued trust of our loyal supporters.
“Vision loss is a challenging disability but our services, including guide dogs and long canes, allow people to realise it doesn’t have to be limiting,” said Dr. White.
“Over the next 10 years it’s predicted that more than 2,000 guide dogs will need to be trained to keep up with growing demand from Australians who are blind or vision impaired, at a staggering cost of over $60 million – it’s the public’s generosity that will make this possible.”
