The social rehabilitation paradigm has shifted from charities to an endeavour to protect, respect, promote and fulfil the rights of persons with disabilities (PwDs), in accordance with the Convention on the Right of Persons with Disabilities. Therefore, equality of PwDs, especially persons with blindness disabilities, in all aspects of life must be materialized. They are also Indonesian citizens, who have the dignity to be respected and to be upheld, with the result that the country has mandated by the Law to pay attention to their aspects of education, health, social protection, employment and accessibility as well. Their existence in accordance with the existing law is necessary to have the support of all parties including persons with disabilities themselves. All in all, this study used a qualitative approach with descriptive technique to analyse the emerging issue. The results of the study have shown that the role of social workers in providing social rehabilitation services, in which they act as problemsolving consultants, resource managers as well as educators, but in carrying out their role still encounter various obstacles, both individually and organizationally.
