Rapid Access to Comprehensive Services


Intervention 8

Campaign for Government to ensure rapid access to comprehensive vision rehabilitation, habilitation, and low vision services.  You cannot learn the new skills to live an independent life with vision loss in a few weeks. An additional injection of about $10 million is needed to deliver core vision rehabilitation to those who currently qualify but do not access core vision rehabilitation services. This funding needs to be complemented by strategies to grow the specialist workforce required to deliver these services.
