​Access to Justice Innovation Fund

What is the Access to Justice Innovation Fund?

The Access to Justice Innovation Fund is a grant opportunity to support innovative projects designed to improve the way legal problems are solved.

 

Background

The NSW Government has established anvAccess to Justice Innovation Fund to support innovative ideas to improve or enhance access to justice in NSW.

Grants will be allocated to low cost, high impact projects that reduce evidenced-based barriers to the justice system, with a focus on communities experiencing disadvantage. Projects must be focused on areas falling within the NSW Government’s legislative responsibility.

The Fund is part of the Civil Justice Action Plan, which aims to help remove the barriers that prevent common disputes from being resolved quickly and fairly.

 

Funding

The Fund was created to encourage innovative approaches to improve the way legal problems are solved. Grants between $50,000 and $250,000 will be awarded to ideas for low cost, high impact projects, particularly those targeting socially and economically disadvantaged communities.

 

Eligible Projects

Priority will be given to proposals addressing access to justice concerns for:

  • Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities
  • Regional and remote communities
  • Communities experiencing disadvantage.

Projects could include those that aim to:

  • explore new approaches to the delivery of legal assistance services and the resolution of legal problems
  • help people to navigate and access the justice system
  • promote collaborative approaches to reducing barriers to justice
  • demonstrate how technology can improve access to, and user experience of, the justice system.

Your project must be focused on areas which fall within the NSW Government’s legislative responsibility.

  • a non-government organisation
  • a not-for-profit organisation; or
