This week on program 457 of New Horizons, we hear from three people and their experiences relating to Blind Citizens Australia’s key election priorities. John Simpson, vice-president of BCA tells us how the disparity between the funding available through the National Disability Insurance and My Aged Care schemes affects him, BCA president Emma Bennison talks about the appalling lack of audio description on Australian television, and former Disability Discrimination commissioner, Graeme Innes talks about the lack of funding for peak bodies to carry out advocacy on behalf of people with disability.
