Lucy is a young woman with low vision. This short animation shows how important it is for her and other people with low vision to have access to the right services and support to help them minimise the negative impact of low vision on their lives.
Lucy is asking decision makers involved in the proposed Australian National Disability Insurance Scheme to ensure people like her get the support they want when they need it.
Lucy is not alone; she's one of thousands of Australians who are asking the question, What About Me?

Audio-described text for animation:
[Opens with an image of Lucy's face and she introduces herself]
My name is Lucy. When I began losing my vision, everything changed.
[Metaphorical image of Lucys' view of the world darkening from the outside into a small circle]
This totally threw me, so much was new and different.
[cuts to scene of Lucy holding a cane and a man showing her how to cross the road at a pedestrian crossing -- this is called orientation and mobility training]
But then, with a bit of help, I started to find my feet again.
I learnt how to get around, be independent and...
[here we cut to an image of Lucy using a computer with screen magnification software in an office environment]
...keep up with my work.
[Lucy checks the time using her talking watch (speech bubble appears announcing that it is 5 O'Clock.]
[Lucy walks past the Parliament House, which looks like the Canberra Parliament building]
[small speech bubbles mimicking a debate appear from the Parliament building saying the following: hear hear, we are in favour. Then one large speech bubble appears above the rest, and a male voice says]
"..a National Disability Insurance Scheme will improve the lives of people with disabilities"
[Lucy stops in front of Parliament and says to herself]
But what about me?
I'm worried I'll be left out
[her work-space symbolically disappears and her orientation and mobility trainer disappears, and she says]
And then where would I be?
[Close-up of Lucy saying the following]
The decisions you make now will change our lives. Don't forget about me.
