Your rights

Know Your rights
You have the right to access and fully participate in every part of life you choose.  This could be education, employment, or any other part of community life.  Your rights are protected by law.

If you have been discriminated against based on your vision impairment, or if you have any questions about your rights, please contact Vision Australia's Advocacy Department at advocacy@visionaustralia.org or telephone 1300 84 74 66.

Advocacy

To create a fairer society for people who are blind or have low vision we respond to injustice. We work alongside people to overcome individual barriers, and through targeted lobbying and campaigning, we inform policy makers, politicians, businesses and industry groups to drive positive change across Australia.

How we can support you

The law and Vision Australia are on your side. If you’re encountering barriers, including discrimination at work, or refusal of entry to a club or taxi because you are in the company of a Seeing Eye Dog, we can support you.

Get in touch

If you would like to advocate for change on your own behalf or require one-on-one advocacy support, we can help you negotiate the outcome you are after.

Please contact our advocacy team on 1300 84 74 66 or email advocacy@visionaustralia.org.
