Latest news – July

Our General Grants round is open for applications
Got an idea to improve Victorians understanding of the law? You could be eligible for a General Grant. Once again, we will be giving priority to Law Week events and legal information projects.

In our last grants round, Barwon Community Legal Service received a General Grant to develop pop-up legal health check stalls across the Barwon region. Lawyers and experienced staff provided free legal advice and information at the stalls to help people identify legal issues and to provide tools for how to best deal with it. More than 1200 people passing by took part.

General Grants applications close Monday 29 August 2016.
