Policy & Advocacy

NCBI’s Policy and Advocacy team work to campaign for positive and lasting change for the benefit of people who are blind and vision impaired. We work with and on behalf of people with vision impairments at a local, national and international level.

Our primary goal is to give a voice to individuals and groups to campaign on issues including public awareness, resource allocation and public policy.
