Vision Australia Radio is calling on the community to consider a tax-deductable donation to ensure it can continue to bring information and programming to air for Australia’s blind and low vision community.

The network’s extensive programming includes newspapers and other publications being read on-air, current affairs, and programs covering blindness and low vision specific topics. Programs range from reading content to interview based offerings presented by and for people living with disability, making Vison Australia Radio unique in the media landscape.

Vision Australia Radio is a vital service for the blind and low vision community across Australia and every dollar that comes through its doors at tax time helps to keep broadcasting across its network of stations, Vision Australia Radio and audio services manager Conrad Browne said.

“Our programming provides access to information through the huge range of newspapers and other periodicals that are read over the air each day. It is one of the only outlets where people who are blind or have low vision can hear programming that not only covers issues that directly impact them but is produced and presented by others who are blind or have low vision,” he said. “Vision Australia Radio is what keeps them connected to their community.”

Donations of $2 or more are tax deductible and can be made online at or PH: 1300 84 74 66. Want to tune in? Find your local frequency or listen online at
