Big Visions features Australian role models who champion resilience and encourage inclusion.

The ground-breaking series depicts everyday low vision and blind Australians living well and chasing their dreams. These important new role models are the first step towards changing the kids Vision Australia works with and Australia's expectations of just how much a child with low vision or blindness can achieve.

Vision Australia's ambition is to use these true, unexpected stories of true resilience, true diversity and inclusion with the ambition of together building a kinder and more accepting Australia through the stories we read and tell.
