The NSW Government is pleased to announce applications for the Access to Justice Innovation Fund to encourage innovative ideas that will help increase access to justice in NSW.

The Fund is part of the Department’s Civil Justice Action Plan, which aims to help remove the barriers that prevent small businesses and individuals from getting the right information and help to resolve common disputes quickly and fairly.

Grants will be allocated to applicants that clearly demonstrate how their low cost, high impact projects can reduce barriers to the justice system, particularly for socially and economically disadvantaged communities.

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; and/or
  • demonstrate how technology can improve access to and user experience of the justice system.
