Vision Australia recently held an event to preview the new $50 note which includes the important accessibility feature of tactile markings. Amongst the guests was Australia’s federal treasurer and member for Kooyong the Hon. Josh Frydenberg and also Assistant Governor for the Reserve Bank of Australia Lindsay Boulton.
Stephen Jolley got an opportunity to speak with both Josh and Lindsay about the new note and what these means for the blindness community.
We also hear from members of Vision Australia’s Advocacy and Engagement Team about the upcoming Victorian state election and Vision Australia’s election priorities and call to action.
Julie Scott from the Vision Store chats to us about Vision Australia’s calendar’s and diaries.
