Access Key

Vision Australia was pleased to provide an Access Key for the 2017 Carols by Candlelight, thanks to AccessAbilityAustralia. The Carols by Candlelight Access Key is an informative, visual ‘accessibility experience guide’.  

The Access Key is aimed to help people understand what to expect from a specific situation before they actually attend, help people interpret circumstances whilst they are in attendance and are a tool for fostering independent participation.

This is a great addition to Carols by Candlelight and we are thrilled to be to continue to increase the accessibility of our event each year.
