Where we can help you

There are a number of ways we can help you produce the best grant application and final project.

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.
