The Foundation's aims are:


* To serve a significant (but largely neglected) sub-group within the vision-impaired community.

* To assist those living with CBS to manage their symptoms more effectively.

* To remove the veil of secrecy, misunderstanding and stigma that is associated with the condition.

* To offer emotional support, information provision, case management and practical assistance to those living with CBS (and their significant others).

* To raise public awareness of CBS within the general community.

* To raise the clinical profile of CBS within medical and health care settings as a means to improved service provision.

* That CBS will become more familiar in everyday common language like Macular Degeneration and Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS).

* To advocate for greater recognition of this condition in the health domain and for resources to be allocated accordingly.

* To channel a proportion of donated or raised monies into scientific research to further an understanding of the cause/s, clinical profile, prevention and possible treatment/s of CBS.
