A look at the 2012 Legal Needs Survey
People with disabilities often have legal problems. One of these problems is that people often break the law by not treating us as they should. People with disabilities often find that doctors do not look after us properly, people do not treat us as equals, and landlords, neighbours, government organisations and police may treat us unfairly. A recent survey shows that people with disabilities and single parents are twice as likely as other people to have legal problems. The survey looks at why some people have a lot of legal problems, and what can be done to help those affected.

Have your say about school
The Victorian Government wants to hear about the experiences of school students with a disability. The Victorian Equal Opportunity and Human Rights Commission is conducting the research. Complaints about students being treated unfairly have been increasing. Students, parents, educators and community organisations can all have a say. You can complete a survey. There will also be special information sessions in regional Victoria in February 2012. Community organisations can also submit written responses.
