Your Rights

The information on the pages below can help you to understand your rights.

Sometimes you need to use your rights to stand up for yourself, and sometimes you need to use your rights to ask for help.   

There is information on talking to the police, your general rights as a L G B T I Q A + person with intellectual disability and some posters to share.

There is also a video about staying safe with people you meet on the internet.   

This information on this page is for you.

Your rights as an LGBTIQA+ person with disability

These resources are NOT in easy language.

Inclusion Designlab worked with an organisation called Thorne Harbour Health to create information for L G B T I Q A + people with disability.

This information is in three guides. One is about your rights as an L G B T I Q A + person with disability. One is about getting ready for your N D I S planning meeting. The last guide is about how to make sure your needs as an L G B T I Q A + person are protected when you pay for support.
