Community Workers Guidelines 

These guidelines are intended for anyone who works for the community sector in NSW and who advises clients about their rights or advocates on their behalf, including:

  • front-line workers in non-government organisations, government departments and local Councils;
  • people who advise clients voluntarily;
  • community leaders; and
  • management committee members.

These guidelines will help you:

  • recognise when unfair treatment is against the law and when it is not;
  • give accurate advice to clients, consumers or members of your community about their rights under anti-discrimination law;
  • assist clients to resolve cases of unfair treatment;
  • find out how to get more information and advice about anti-discrimination law;
  • and understand how to use the Anti-Discrimination Board, including how to help someone lodge a complaint with the Board.

To order these guidelines, use the Publications Order Form​​.

If you need assistance filling out the form, please contact the Anti-Discrimination Board on (02) 9268 5555 or 1800 670 812.
