9 am – 4 pm
The Save Sight Institute is pleased to let you know that it will deliver its sixth Annual Information Day on Saturday 3 November 2018. Registrations are now open.
The Info Day is for young people living with low vision or blindness and those who care for them. The day is designed to meet the needs of teenagers or young adults and their parents/carers, as well as the parents/carers of young children. Teachers are also invited.
The day features a broad range of speakers to address topics of interest and relevance to young people with vision loss or an eye disease.
All day program, lunch provided
We are currently in the process of locking in a range of expert speakers. Register now, and stay tuned for more information (and let us know if you have any particular ideas or recommendations!).
Sydney CBD location
We will again deliver the day in a central Sydney CBD location, near to public transport and parking.
The event will be held at the University of Sydney School of Business CBD Campus. This is located in the Stockland Building, Level 17, 133 Castlereagh Street, Sydney, NSW 2000
Who should attend?
- Teenagers, or young adults living with an eye condition with their parents
- Parents and carers of children with an eye condition
- Teachers and therapists of children and young people who live with an eye condition
- Organisations that provide services to young people living with an eye condition.
The day is an opportunity for people to connect with each other, share experiences and get up-to-date information. The SSI team will provide an update on research developments, and will be available to answer questions. We also invite a range of service providers and subject matter experts to give attendees a "one stop shop" to find out what's new in the sector, and to catch up with each other.
Places are limited
As a free event, places are limited. We aim to provide attendees with a valuable and enjoyable day, and so for catering and venue reasons, need to confirm numbers in advance. Please register if you would like to attend, and if you know of anyone else who would benefit from attending, please let them know ASAP so that they don't miss out.
