Have you been treated unfairly or differently because of your disability, disease, illness or injury? Did it happen in your workplace, your school, your sports club or in your community? This may be unlawful discrimination.
The Disability Discrimination Legal Service (DDLS), a specialist community legal centre, is sending a community lawyer to Bendigo on the 24th of March to provide free face-to-face advice to people who think they have been discriminated against on the basis of a disability.
People can book to speak with the DDLS lawyer at Loddon Campaspe Community Legal Centre, 54 Mitchell Street, Bendigo between 4 and 7pm. To make an appointment, please call Jackie Kerr on 0488 068 669.
