Matthew Layton and Sam Rickard present Studio 1 - Vision Australia Radio’s weekly look at life from a low vision and blind point of view.
The second of two shows from The Royal Society for the Blind’s factory facility in Adelaide - a social enterprise that employs 63 people with varying degrees of vision impairment.
Factory Operations Manager Peter Ware gives us a tour of the facility’s manufacturing area, where the team use thermo-forming equipment to make everything from food packaging to the dome light covers for taxis.
We’ll be finding out what it’s actually like to work at The Royal Society for the Blind’s industrial facility by speaking to team member Matt Hueppauff.
Then Vision Australia’s employment guru Belinda Wilson joins Matthew and Sam for some post-match analysis.
Please get in touch with the show, whether you have experience of any of the issues covered in this episode of Studio 1 or if you think there’s something we should be talking about.
You never know your story and your insight may help somebody else who is dealing with something similar.
