Victoria Legal Aid

Corporate Plan 2022–23

Read our current priorities to deliver on our statutory objectives and strategic directions.

Our Corporate Plan 2022–23 outlines our priorities for the year, our performance targets and annual budget, as well as our strategic advocacy priorities.

This is our first Corporate Plan under Strategy 26 and our new Outcomes Framework.

The pandemic provided an opportunity for us to innovate how we provide services, and we will continue to work with the courts and justice sector partners to help to reduce the backlog in the courts.
