This week on Talking Vision you’ll hear from Brenda, a disability advocate, volunteer and keen lawn bowler who lost her vision late in life. Brenda catches up with Matthew Layton as part of the Let’s talk about vision loss series, which explores the lives and achievements of people who have experienced vision loss.
Policy and advocacy team leader Jane Britt from Blind Citizens Australia also joins the show to speak about her work advocating for people who are blind or have low vision.
It was this advocacy work which saw Jane win a Vision Australia youth award in 2020. She joins Stella to talk about the awards, which are now open for nominations until the 12th of August.
Then finally on the show this week, Sam catches up for a super quick chat with retinitis pigmentosa advocate and Big Brother superfan Bethany Cody. We get her thoughts and share in the exciting news about winner of Big Brother Reggie Sorensen who, like Bethany, has lived experience with RP.
