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.
