    Blind Citizens WA Geraldton Meet Up

    Do you live in the Mid-West and have vision loss?Β 

    Come along to our Meet and Greet event in Geraldton on the 27th of April 2024.

    BCWA will be visitingΒ Geraldton to help strengthen peer support and advocacy for people who are blind and vision impaired in WA’s great Mid-West!

    Is there something you really want to happen in Geraldton? Regular peer support meetings, or certain sport or recreational activities, a better public transport service? Whatever you may desire, we will share some practical advocacy tools that have made things happen in Perth and Albany.

    This event is the perfect opportunity to meet people living with vision impairmentΒ in a relaxed setting, enjoy some light refreshments and aΒ free lunch.Β Partners, family,Β friends and support workersΒ all welcome.

    Members of Blind Citizens WA, including Chair of Blind Citizens WA Zel Iscel and Project Officer Tara, would love for you to join them for a chat to learn more about their advocacy work.Β 

    The support organisation aims to achieve equity and equality for people with low or no vision. The informal catch-up is part of Blind Citizens WA’s BEACON project. It stands for Blindness Empowerment Across Communities Outreach Network.
