Queensland Government

The Queensland Government allocates Queensland and Commonwealth funding for legal assistance services delivered by Legal Aid Queensland and community organisations (mostly Community Legal Centres). Over 2017-20 community organisations will receive $60.4 million in total of Queensland and Commonwealth funding to provide free legal assistance services to vulnerable and disadvantaged Queenslanders.

We are pleased to welcome representatives from the Queensland Government Department of Justice and Attorney-General to facilitate a workshop at the Annual Conference seeking feedback on the process used to allocate legal assistance service delivery funding over 2017-20.
