Making the magic of Christmas accessible

November 8th, 2017

It's not many more sleeps until the Credit Union Christmas Pageant comes to town and Access2Arts with the support of Guide Dogs SA/NT and the Royal Society for the Blind (RSB) is making the magic come alive for people with vision loss.

A recent tour of the Stardust Castle, where the elves are busy putting the finishing touches to the floats, enabled children and adults from Kilparrin School and Guide Dogs SA/NT and RSB and their families and supporters, to get up close to the floats, to touch them and gain an understanding of their size, decorations and themes.

Learning skills for life

October 10th, 2017

The journey to adulthood presents many challenges – how to cook for yourself, tackling the cleaning, finding your own way about and paying bills.

Combine that with a visual impairment, and there are other challenges to embrace, at a time when peer support networks may be changing as you leave school and go onto a job or tertiary study while wanting to lead an independent life.

Guide Dogs SA is assisting young people with a vision impairment to bridge this life challenge with its school holiday camp at the Warradale Urban Camp School and a multitude of venues around Adelaide.
