|Queensland Human Rights Act commences|
|Queensland's Human Rights Act commenced on 1 January 2020. |
The Human Rights Act will have significant impacts on Queenslanders. More information is available from the Queensland Human Rights Commission: https://www.qhrc.qld.gov.au/your-rights/human-rights-law.
The Human Rights Act will also impact on our services. Townsville Community Legal Service has been a leading human rights advocate throughout its history, so in many respects the new Human Rights Act is a continuation of our work. We have renamed our "General Service" to the "Human Rights and Civil Legal Service" to better reflect our practice areas.
