ADA Australia Launches My Rights QLD
On April 9, ADA Australia, in partnership with Legal Aid Queensland, launched My Rights Qld: a free online tool providing information for Queenslanders with disability.
My Rights Qld is a simple, one-stop-shop for information that supports people to better understand and exercise their rights. It covers a wide range of topics including the NDIS, substitute decision-making, health, mental health, housing, discrimination and much more.
ADA Australia 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, an online resource full of easy-to-access information was created to:
- help streamline the pathways for people with disability; and
- help Queenslanders resolve issues they may be having.
Accessibility continues to be one of the most common barriers for people with disability.
My Rights QLD is accessible from a smart phone, tablet or computer and can be found at http://www.myrightsqld.com.au.
