Every year ABA helps hundreds of South Asians with visual impairments, along with their carers to manage their condition so they can live independent and fulfilling lives. We hope you can join ABA to help celebrate 30 years of crucial support, care and help plan for the future.

The aim of the conference is:

  • To increase engagement and co-operation amongst organisations to better support South Asians with visual impairments, along with their families
  • To ensure the latest scientific and educational developments are utilised to best support this demographic of people
  • To help ensure sustainability for projects involving sight loss

The conference will see a combination of key note speakers and workshops. There will be three workshops for delegates on three key areas: Co-production, Sustainability and Action Research.
