About us

The Disability Discrimination Legal Service has decided to move its operations off site for the next two weeks effective 17 March 2020. We will review this situation fortnightly, taking into consideration the government/health department advice in relation to the coronavirus. The best way to contact us is by email at info@ddls.org.au. You may still contact us on our regular phone number, however there may be a delay of a few hours in staff returning your call. If you have sent something to us in the mail, a staff member will continue to check the mail twice a week and make sure that the person it is intended for receives it. A decision to return to operating from our offices in the city will be posted on our website. Otherwise, we will continue to work offsite until further notice. Thank you for your understanding. The Disability Discrimination Legal Service Inc (DDLS) is a statewide independent community legal centre that specialises in disability discrimination legal matters. We provide free legal services in several areas including information, referral, advice, casework assistance, community legal education, and policy and law reform.
