Blind Citizens WA members share information and support when wanted, finding solutions to common challenges.
Blind Citizens WA provides many opportunities to offer and receive peer support, including general meetings, occasional social events, and via our Facebook Group.
If you would like to chat to someone else who is blind or vision impaired, we welcome your involvement.

Releasing our Capacity – National Disability Insurance Agency Disability
Support Organisation Project.
In late 2014, People With disabilities WA www.pwdwa.org were successful in receiving funding from the National Disability Insurance Agency to act as a Disability Support Organisation (non provider). PWdWA is currently working with people with disability to support 20 local support (peer support) groups to make the most of the opportunities presented by the NDIS https://www.ndis.gov.au and engage effectively with the scheme.
Blind Citizens WA is one of the local peer support and peer run groups.
