Reporting discrimination

Council is committed to combating discrimination in the community including racism, sexism, ageism, ableism, homophobia, biphobia and transphobia. Discrimination includes bigotry, prejudiced behaviour, hate speech and vilification.

We have partnered with the Victorian Human Rights and Equal Opportunity Commission (VEOHRC) to make it easier to report discrimination when it happens to you. The Commission is an independent agency and part of its role is to receive and try to resolve complaints from the community.

Reports can be made easily using the Community Reporting Tool (CRT). The Tool asks you four questions with the option of being contacted by the Commission if you wish. Even if you’re not sure whether what has happened to you is discrimination – making a report to the Commission can help.

In the current Covid-19 emergency, when we know racism and race-based incidents have been increasing, we encourage you to use the CRT to report discrimination if you or someone you know has experienced discrimination.
