Welcome to Zest - a place for youth, by youth.

Hi! I'm Conor, and I am the Client Insights Co-ordinator with Vision Australia. With my awesome team mates, it's my job to look after Zest, and to tell you about the forums and how you can get involved.

Special Announcement! Exciting opportunity to participate and earn $150!

Before you read on to learn more about Zest, I want to tell you about a neat project that we're working on. We're looking to develop a search engine that finds information specifically relevant to younger people who are blind or have low vision. We want to find out more about how you find information and answers to your questions. If you're between the ages of 18-24 yrs, you can earn $150 by having a short interview with one of our team, followed by joining a focus group to get your feedback on what we have created. Go here to learn more and register...

What is Zest?

Zest is an online community for people aged from around 18 to 35 who are blind or who have low vision. From friendships to confidence, if it's part of everyday life, we're talking about it here.

Check out The Story of Zest on Talking Vision (audio).

Here's how you can get started - it's easy:

1. Check out our handy audio guide on how to use Zest

2. Register for Participate Vision Australia here or login

3. Say hi - go to our guestbook and introduce yourself

4. We'll say hi back and introduce you to the forums

5. Come and hang out for a while, let us know about your experiences, or ask that burning question that's on your mind.

What's in Zest?

Zest has six different forums:

Within each forum you'll find a description of the page, followed by the forum and then further links: ‘Useful links’ connects you to further information and resources; and ‘Useful documents’ can be read and downloaded to keep on your device. Occasionally we will add other features to these pages.

We are interested in hearing from lots of different people about lots of different things - so, get sharing!

Don't miss out on a new post...
