The Case Study below was included in our Annual Report for 2022-2023.

The importance of inclusion and access

Emily* contacted DSC and explained that she was planning a trip to a museum with friends. The tickets were purchased to an exhibition and upon enquiring about the use of a wheelchair at the visit the museum staff told her that it is a ‘first come, first served’ system. Emily told us she felt humiliation, and sad about the possibility of not being able to access the venue. We directed her to contact the Victorian Equal Opportunity and Human Rights Commission.
