Feedback needed for response to the McClure Welfare Review Report

We need your feedback:

Blind Citizens Australia is currently in the midst of preparing its response to the McClure Welfare Review Report, which seems to make the assumption that the current income support arrangements for people with a disability serve as a dicincentive to look for work.

We know that this view fails to recognise the full range of barriers that exist for people who are blind or vision impaired who are seeking to enter the workforce and want to hear about your own job-seeking experiences.

Have you been proactive in looking for work, but to no avail?

Please contact us and let us know by sending an email to with “employment” in the subject line.
