AED Legal Centre is a specialist Community Legal Service operating throughout the state of Victoria.
The centre provides information, education, advice, and legal representation to people with disability who experience discrimination in the areas of education or employment as well as representation to people seeking review of decisions about their NDIS plans.
Our main objective is to defend the human rights of people with a disability in education or employment and give them access to the justice system through a combination of individual, legal and systemic advocacy.
The centre is a member of the Federation of Community Legal Centres of Victoria and is accredited by the National Association of Community Legal Centres (NACLCs).
AED Legal Centre is part of the National Disability Advocacy Program (NDAP) and is mainly funded by the Australian Government through the Department of Social Services.
Our national Wage Justice Campaign is funded by the Reichstein Foundation, community fundraising activities and donations from individuals. As part of this campaign, AED is currently pursuing a new wage assessment framework to protect supported employees working in Australian Disability Enterprises.
AED acknowledges the traditional custodians of the lands across Australia and particularly the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nation on which the AED office is situated. We pay deep respect to Elders past and present.
