Victorian Legal Services Board Grants Program: 2019 funding round open

December 6, 2018

The Victorian Legal Services Board has launched its 2019 Grants Program funding round.

The Board’s priority theme for 2019 will be ‘Designing Justice Differently: Using Human-Centred Design and Technology’. The theme aims to stimulate new ways of thinking to achieve change in some of the seemingly intractable legal and social problems that face society and the legal sector.

‘Human-centred design’ is a framework that helps develop solutions to problems by approaching them from the point of view of those experiencing the problems. It provides opportunities for service and system reforms that remove the barriers which vulnerable people experience.

The Board is looking to fund human-centred design and/or technological projects that interrupt, streamline or change legal services and the justice system to improve access to justice.
