Public Interest Law helps people whose legal issues arise as result of their disability. We connect people with our network of pro bono lawyers who can help them understand their rights and resolve their legal problem.
Accessing the NDIS and getting the right support under an NDIS plan can be difficult. If someone disagrees with a decision the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) has made, they can appeal the decision to the Administrative Appeals Tribunal (AAT). Public Interest Law can find legal assistance for people who have a complex matter before at the AAT or superior Courts.
NDIS participants can encounter legal problems with a person or the organisation that provides support under their NDIS plan. If this occurs, we can refer eligible people for advice on their rights, from our network of pro bono lawyers.
Many people living with a disability still experience discrimination at work, in education, and when trying to access housing and other services. If you have made a discrimination complaint under either state or federal legislation in Victoria or New South Wales, we may be able to arrange legal advice on your claim and legal help running your case.
