Access to our office:
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
DDLS relies on government funding in order to provide services to the community. We appreciate any additional financial assistance offered. If you wish to donate to contribute to our services, please contact email@example.com or the Administration Officer on 9654-8644. All donations are tax-deductible.

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.
