Stand up for your rights

Your rights matter and you should be free to live the life you choose.
 
Sometimes, even with the law on your side, you may encounter discrimination or barriers as a result of being blind or having low vision that stops you from exercising your rights. We understand that trying to get the outcome you’re after can be overwhelming at times.
 

Our Stand Up For Your Rights Guides cover general skills, web accessibility, employment, approaching government, aged care and disability pensions, travel, education and the Disability Discrimination Act. Each guide provides tips and resources to help you move through every step of the process. The resources are available for download below.
