Announcing the 2019 Grants Round Successful Applicants

The 2019 Grants round prioritised funding around the theme of Designing Justice Differently: Using human-centred design and technology. Applicants had to meet the theme requirements of using technological and/or human-centred design interventions to interrupt, streamline or change legal services and the justice system to improve access to justice.
