As a result of the Australian Human Rights Commission report, Equal before the law: Towards disability justice strategies, services which support people with disabilities in the criminal justice system were invited to contribute to form a comprehensive list of these services.

 

WWILD also provides support to people in the justice system who have been victims of crime, and has an Information, Advice and Referral service.
