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.

This week:

The first of two shows from The Royal Society for the Blind’s manufacturing facility in Adelaide - a factory that employs 63 people with varying degrees of vision impairment.

Factory Operations Manager Peter Ware gives Sam and Matthew a tour of the facility and explains that, while the RSB are running a social enterprise that gives employment to people living with low vision or blindness, they are also a commercial business with clients including The Adelaide Hills Food Company and Coopers, delivering products to the likes of Aldi, Coles and Woolies.

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.
