Access to our office: The main Ross House lift will be closed for upgrading from Monday December 16th, 2019 to Monday 17th February 2020. You can access our office via the stairs during this period, if you cannot use the stairs please contact us for alternative arrangements. We have developed an action plan (i.e. change venue of meetings) to ensure that the lift upgrade will not disadvantage clients with physical or related disabilities.

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.
The DDLS works actively towards the eradication of disability discrimination and facilitates and promotes justice for people with disabilities through community legal education sessions to professional and community groups to raise disability awareness and provide information on the Disability Discrimination Act 1992 (Cth) and the Equal Opportunity Act 2010 (Vic).
We also undertake community development research projects to investigate and challenge current social, economic and legislative issues affecting people with disabilities in the community.
In addition to the resources here, see our Publications and Law Reform pages for more information on DDLS’s work.
