Report discrimination

Discrimination drags us all down. If you have experienced discrimination, violence or abuse, report it. 

If you think you might be experiencing depression or anxiety due to the impact of discrimination, talk to a trusted health professional or use the links on our helpful contacts and website page to seek help.

Report discrimination

Discrimination can take many forms, ranging from physical violence to subtle forms of prejudice and unconscious bias. If you have been the victim of abuse, violence or other criminal behaviour and it is an emergency, call 000.

For police assistance or attendance when it is not an emergency, call 131 444 (all states and territories except Victoria). In Victoria, contact your local police station.

Making a complaint

If you have been discriminated against, you can report it to the Australian Human Rights Commission or the relevant anti-discrimination or equal opportunity commission in your state or territory. Examples of discrimination include being excluded from accessing services or participating in employment, education, sport or social activities.
