Small Grants

Our Small Grants make a big impact where and when it’s needed.

A Small Grant is perfect for organisations who need to act quickly, have an idea for a low-cost, high-impact legal project, or who need money to scope a larger project.

In 2016/17, our focus will again be on supporting Law Week and legal information projects. With Law Week projects, priority will be given to new Law Week events or to the expansion of previously delivered events, particularly in rural and regional areas. We will also offer grants for legal information projects where a demonstrated need can be shown.

You can apply at any time – there are no closing dates for Small Grants – and we can usually assess your application within two weeks.

Before you apply:

  • read our grants criteria – this will help you understand what kinds of projects we want to fund
  • contact our Grants Manager to discuss your project – contact us before you apply wherever possible.

Find out how to apply for a Small Grant.
