Access all areas
Access is no joke.
Imagine if you were refused access to a café or a restaurant, told you couldn’t stay at a certain hotel, or take transport like taxis and ride-shares, buses and trains? Many people with low vision or blindness experience access challenges just like these on a daily basis.
But it doesn’t have to be this way. Join comedian, actor and Guide Dogs Ambassador Michelle Brasier and Broden Kelly of Aunty Donna fame as they introduce our Access All Areas campaign – a campaign designed to remove barriers for people with low vision or blindness, and provoke change – because access is no joke.
