Natural Disaster Disability Advocacy

Overview

Our Natural Disaster Disability Advocacy (NDDA) solicitors provide legal help to Queenslanders with disability for natural disasters.

What we do

Our NDDA solicitors may be able to assist you if you were impacted by the floods in 2022, or if you think you would be at risk of harm in future natural disasters. In particular, our NDDA solicitors can provide specialist advice and assistance on the discriminatory impacts natural disasters have on people with disability in Queensland, particularly as it relates to safe and accessible housing and servicing.  

Our team may also be able to work with you and your landlord to develop an inclusive emergency response plan to make sure no one is left behind in any future emergencies. 

    Who we help

    The NDDA solicitors can assist people who:

    • Live with disability
    • Live in Queensland
    • Were impacted by the 2022 floods and/or
    • May be a risk of harm in future natural disasters

    The extent of assistance that will be provided is at the discretion of the service. We will consider circumstances such as the vulnerability and needs of the client, the merits of the case and available resources.
