Developing high quality projects
The foundation is committed to supporting projects that really work to improve Victorians' understanding of the law and their legal system. When you are developing a grant project to produce community legal information, you should consider the following.
Better information toolkit
The Better information toolkit has been developed to support the development of successful community legal education projects. In the toolkit you can get hints on developing project plans for project management and evaluating your project.
Plain language tools
We have developed a range of tools and resources to help you ensure that your legal information meets the needs of your audiences. View the plain language tools.
VLAF online legal information guidelines
If your project involves the development of online legal information, or a website, then you will be required to follow the VLAF online legal information guidelines. These outline 12 steps to producing best practice online legal information.
Use of editors, writers and designers
Good publications need professional help. The foundation encourages and will provide funding for the engagement of professionals such as editors, writers and designers.
How we can help
If you are unsure about any aspect of your project, we may be able to help. The foundation employs experts in plain language, publishing, communications, education and events, all of whom are happy to discuss your project and share their knowledge.
