Policy

BCA’s National Policy function provides systemic advocacy and information services to break down the barriers of inequity and injustice that confront Australians who are blind or vision impaired. These barriers can include discrimination in the labor market, inaccessible voting practices at elections and the low level of specialist support teachers for children who are blind or vision impaired.

BCA works to remove these, and other barriers, through the development and promotion of pertinent, evidence based public policy that draws on the organisation’s membership and the expertise of BCA’s National Policy and Development Council (NPDC).

This Policy section of BCA’s website contains extensive information and resources on many systemic advocacy matters facing Australians who are blind or vision impaired.

BCA encourages all persons concerned about the needs of individuals who are blind or vision impaired, and their families, to use these resources and lobby governments throughout Australia to improve the rights of the community of blind and vision impaired.
