“An Eye to the Future is an initiative of Blind Citizens Australia (BCA) funded through the Department of Social Services that recognises the career potential of people who are blind or vision impaired, including their unique skillsets, adaptability and flexibility. .

This website provides tools and resources to employers, employees and job seekers around remote working, inclusion, accessibility and adaptive technology, and acts as the central hub for our work placement and internship Program.
