Blind Citizens WA provides information that is up-to-date and relevant to our members and other Western Australians who are blind or vision impaired.
Access to information is one of the biggest challenges facing people who are blind or vision impaired. Blind Citizens WA provides information to members in their preferred format, whether it be large print, Braille, audio or electronic (for example, via email). If you would like more information about how people who are blind or vision impaired access information, please let us know.
Blind Citizens WA Inc. produces a seasonal audio magazine for members called Consumer Voice, recorded at Curtin FM.
Our co-hosts interview people with an interesting story to tell, regardless of any association with blindness and vision impairment. Members are able to suggest potential interviewees or topics. Consumer Voice also includes information about upcoming events organised by Blind Citizens WA and is sent out each quarter on CD. Consumer Voice will soon be available to download online.
Want to be involved? If you have an interest in radio and would like to have a go in the studio, we welcome guest co-hosts from our membership. Please contact Deanne Ferris via firstname.lastname@example.org.
