My Rights Qld launched

Aged and Disability Advocacy Australia (ADA Australia), in partnership with Legal Aid Queensland has launched My Rights Qld, a new toolkit that was officially unveiled by Mr Bart Mellish, MP at the Supreme Court Library in Brisbane.

 

My Rights Qld is a simple, one-stop-shop website for information that supports people to better understand and exercise their rights.

 

ADA Australia and Legal Aid Queensland identified a resource gap for people with disability trying to navigate Queensland systems to find help to protect their rights.

 

Information about how to seek help, or complain about issues impacting them, is often scattered across multiple websites and written in jargon-heavy language. To address this, ADA Australia and Legal Aid Queensland created an online resource full of easy-to-access information to help streamline the pathways for people with disability to resolve issues they may be having.

 

My Rights Qld covers a wide range of topics including the NDIS, substitute decision-making, health, mental health, housing, discrimination and much more.

 

The My Rights Qld website is available at http://www.myrightsqld.com.au/public/index.php
