The experience of vision loss
Each year, thousands of New Zealanders are diagnosed with visual disorders that may lead to blindness. At the time of diagnosis people with uncorrectable vision loss feel shocked, anxious and alone. They also face practical concerns about money, jobs and coping with everyday life.
The need for low vision rehabilitation services
When a person's ability to perform key tasks of daily living is impaired, their quality of life is severely compromised. Low vision rehabilitation is a cost effective way of enabling people with sight loss to maintain their skills, their confidence and their independence.

Pedestrians are New Zealand’s forgotten road victims.
Each year almost four times as many pedestrians as cyclists are killed on New Zealand roads. Yet government has no Pedestrian Safety Plan and makes no investment in Urban Pedestrian infrastructure. We need an enquiry.
