Legal Aid Queensland is an independent statutory authority funded by the state and federal governments. Legal Aid Queensland’s vision is to be a leader in a fair justice system where people are able to understand and protect their legal rights. Our purpose is to provide quality, cost effective legal services to financially disadvantaged people throughout Queensland.
Legal Aid Queensland’s Information and Advice Services area provides high-quality legal information, referral and legal advice services to vulnerable and disadvantaged Queenslanders over the telephone, face-to-face, at our regional offices, at correctional centres and via videoconference.
The division is currently hosting an Information line providing frontline legal assistance to clients engaged with, or seeking to engage with, the Royal Commission into Violence, Abuse, Neglect and Exploitation of People with Disability (the Royal Commission). This Information line forms part of the Your Story Disability Legal Support (Your Story), which is a national service operated by Legal Aid Queensland, in conjunction with staff from National Legal Aid and National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Legal Services.
Your Story provides legal advice, information and assistance to people with disability, their families, carers, advocates and supporters wanting to engage with the Royal Commission. It is an independent, trauma-informed and culturally safe service delivered nationally using best practice standards and a human rights approach.
