Through our Advocacy Program we aim:
– To ensure that the rights of those with vision impairment in Israel are protected and implemented;
– To advocate policies for equal opportunities and access thereby leading toward an improved quality of life and inclusion in our society.
By working together with legislators, local and central government officials and representatives of national institutions such as the National Insurance Authority we are championing the needs of those with vision impairment and placing their needs on the public agenda. IBCU receives many appeals from the public and realizes that their rights and issues need voicing and protecting as many feel voiceless and helpless against the establishment. We provide that voice and understanding as we represent them and enable fair and appropriate legislation and protection in law.
