Stand up for your rights

Your rights matter and you should be free to live the life you choose.
 
Sometimes, even with the law on your side, you may encounter discrimination or barriers as a result of being blind or having low vision that stops you from exercising your rights. We understand that trying to get the outcome you’re after can be overwhelming at times.

Our Stand Up For Your Rights Guides cover general skills, web accessibility, employment, traveling with a Seeing Eye Dog and education. Each guide provides tips and resources to help you move through every step of the process. Please download below. 

Education

We know that it means the world to you that your child is treated fairly at school and receives the best possible education. Our detailed and quick access education guides help you navigate through specific areas to help you get the outcome you’re after.

Stay in touch
