Battling discrimination

Older woman

Despite living in her leased apartment for years, senior citizen pensioner Lin, who lives with disability, had endured long-term elder abuse from her landlord.

The on-going physical and mental discriminatory abuse became so intense it resulted in Lee being hospitalised twice.

How PWDA helped

When Lin approached PWDA, she was determined to take charge of her situation and worked closely with a PWDA advocate over the following months.

With new support, Lin successfully represented herself in Federal Court under the Anti-Discrimination Act and received substantial compensation for all she had endured.

She also prevented herself from becoming homeless and is now living peacefully within the community.
