The Blind Foundation participates in many of the consultations undertaken by the government, local authorities, and other agencies.

It is a really important part in guiding change and providing education, information and awareness.

We also comment on research needs, proposals for changes to legislation and social policy. The views and expertise of our community and staff inform the writing and presentation of submissions. In some cases we makes joint submissions with other groups, e.g. blindness consumer organisations that have strength in advocacy.
