Under the legal assistance services program, LASF administers Queensland and Commonwealth funding for the delivery of legal assistance services by community organisations and Legal Aid Queensland.

LASF has worked tirelessly to foster productive working relationships and mutual respect with the sector by maintaining open communication with internal and external stakeholders.

QLeave administers portable long service leave schemes to help eligible workers build up long service leave benefits based on service to industry, rather than with an individual employer. Workers who change jobs can still accrue long service leave when the hours they work are recorded with the scheme. 

There is no cost for workers to be a member of the scheme. Employers will pay a levy and submit an employer return each quarter, showing the wages of their workers. Once the worker has recorded the required amount of service, they are entitled to be paid long service leave.
