Consumer resources for people with a disability

The ACCC has released new resources for consumers of disability-related products and services.

Including a collection of online information, a scam alert and educational video, the package is designed to help disability consumers be alert to potential scams and understand and exercise their consumer rights.

Australians collectively spend billions on vital disability services and products every year. These consumers have a right to protection under the Australian Consumer Law for any disability product or service purchased.

This could include products such as:

  • wheelchairs
  • hearing aids
  • hydrotherapy equipment

Or services, including:

  • building services
  • case management
  • physiotherapy.
