Canberra Disability Rights Legal Service

“Advocacy for Inclusion” launched the Disability Rights Legal Service on 18 June 2015.

One of the only of it’s kind in Australia, the service is seen as a natural extension of their advocacy work and aims to provide information for people with disabilities and advocacy through volunteer solicitors and partnerships with private providers.

The centre has named its priorities as addressing disproportionate representation in the prison system, high rates of child removal and restrictive guardianship orders.

The DRLC is located on University Avenue and are grateful forĀ volunteer solicitors or civilians who can give up any amount of time to assist.
