Eyes and Independence
Some years ago, a man by the name of Dr John Ravenscroft came to Australia sharing his success from Scotland. He had developed a Register and collected names of people (predominantly children) with a vision impairment from all over the country. As a result of this data, there was a large impact and increase in funding for those with a vision impairment because they had the data to prove how many would benefit. With John's assistance, Australia began collecting data and still continue to do so in order for future planning and evidence of the needs for our children with a vision impairment. If you haven't registered, we encourage you to do so as 'Better data = Better outcomes'.
