This month we held a Low Vision Mobility Expo in sunny Cairns.
The free community event showcased new mobility options available to Cairns residents, to ensure those across the region with low or no vision are able to regain and retain their mobility, independence and confidence.
Local residents enjoyed trialling the new technologies available to them and finding out what difference they can make to their daily lives.
We were also fortunate to have local resident Belinda West come along to the expo to talk about some of the blind and low vision sports that are available in the Far North, including the thriving Goal Ball group, that is attracting participants of all ages to actively get involved in the sport.
Our expos provide an opportunity for people who are blind or losing their vision to learn more about the support available to them. We hold a number of Mobility Expos throughout the state every year, so keep an eye on our calendar or call (07) 3500 9060 to find out when one is coming up near you.
