Human Rights Act ‘not all lollipops and rainbows’

At the launch of the campaign for a Human Rights Act for Queensland, Rob Hulls (former Attorney General of Victoria) told us that although their Charter of Rights had “made the world of difference to some people”, Victoria still isn’t “the land of lollipops and rainbows.”

However, after the announcement that the Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews has signed an agreement with our new Prime Minister to roll out the NDIS, the sun is sure shining brighter for people living with disability in Victoria.

Victorians with disability can look forward to the full implementation of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) with the assurance that their Charter of Rights will continue to provide a safeguard that the services that are delivered to them by public authorities will be done in accordance with a human rights framework.
