Please note that while Commission has has statutory responsibilities under the Disability Discrimination Act - which is concerned with non-discriminatory access and opportunity throughout society, in areas such as employment and education - we do not have any responsibilities in relation to the Disability Services Acts of each Australian jurisdiction, which are concerned with services more specifically directed to people with disabilities. In common with all Australian legislation, the Commonwealth Disability Services Act and its equivalents in each State and Territory may be found on the website of the Australasian Legal Information Institute.
