A severely disabled man has received compensation for the discrimination he suffered because of his disabilities while serving
a nine-month prison sentence. He used a wheelchair and faced significant difficulties performing his daily tasks and fully
participating in important parts of prison life. The prison was made aware of his disabilities and the difficulties those
created for him while living in the prison environment. His difficulties included entering and manoeuvring his wheelchair
inside his cell, using toilet and showering facilities, cleaning his cell, collecting his meals and moving around the prison,
and accessing work and library opportunities.
