Cancellation of Grants Program
On 5 December 2018, the Board of Governors of the Law and Justice Foundation of NSW announced the cancellation of our Grants Program, due to a lack of core funding. Over the past 20 years the Grants Program has awarded more than $4.6 million to projects that have significantly improved access to justice for socially and economically disadvantaged people in New South Wales.

The Foundation's Grants Program has effected change for some of the most disadvantaged people in our community such as women experiencing domestic violence, young people, people with mental health problems, people with a disability and Indigenous Australians. It has also strengthened the evidence base on 'what works' in the legal assistance sector.
