We supported Akaash to tell his story in a safe way
Akaash (not his real name) called us because he was being discriminated against at work and by the police because of his disability.
He wanted to share his story with the Disability Royal Commission but didn’t know how. He was worried what might happen to him if the people he named in his story found out.
Akaash spoke to us. One of our lawyers explained how Akaash could get special legal protections to tell his story more safely. Our lawyer worked with the Royal Commission to get Akaash those special legal protections.
With our support, Akaash shared his story with the Royal Commission in a way that was safe for him.
