Happy Birthday VAR Perth

Vision Australia Radio celebrates three years on the air

The celebrations are underway at Vision Australia Radio, as their team of 50+ volunteers mark the station’s third birthday this October.

VAR began broadcasting to the Perth metro area on 990AM on 12 October 2015 with the aim of providing a valuable reading and information service for those with a print disability, people who are blind or have low vision through to those where age or issues with literacy leave them unable to effectively access published materials.

Each week volunteer readers, panel operators, editors and presenters donate their time to produce over 17 hours of local content, with more local programs on the way.

If you’d like to join the team at VAR, please email var-perth@visionaustralia.org or phone 0472 784 470.
