This report finds that people of CALD backgrounds were less aware of legal aid services, while people with disabilities were significantly more aware.

This report was conducted by The Social Research Centre on behalf of Victorian Legal Aid to better understand Victorians’ awareness of legal aid, perceptions about priority access to services, and expectations of government funded legal aid.

Awareness was comparatively higher for people with a disability than for members of culturally or linguistically diverse communities and significantly higher in regional Victoria compared to metropolitan locations. Around a quarter of research participants had previous experience with legal aid services, most being with VLA.
