Through funding provided to Blind Citizens Australia (BCA) as part of the National Disability Insurance Agency’s (NDIA’s) Information, Linkages and Capacity Building (ILC) Grant, BCA created ‘An Eye to the Future’; a program that recognises the potential of people who are blind or vision impaired as reliable, dedicated employees in multiple sectors and with many varied skill sets.

We are building a community that will share information, insights and resources to support both employees and employers.

  • To assist those looking for work with tools and mentoring.
  • To support hiring managers to create a workforce that is diverse and dynamic.
  • To challenge perceptions.
