Battling discrimination

With PWDA support, Lin had a win in Federal Court over antidiscrimination and avoided homelessness.

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

The ongoing physical and mental discriminatory abuse became so intense it resulted in Lin 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.
