Is there financial help available if I am called to be a witness?

The Legal Financial Assistance Scheme can help with the cost of lawyers when you tell your story to the Royal Commission.

The Attorney General’s Department website has information about:

  • scheme eligibility
  • how to apply
  • assessment time-frames.

Is there financial help available before I am compelled by the Royal Commission to provide documents or appear as a witness?

If you are a small not-for-profit organisation, you may qualify for pro-bono (free) legal help facilitated by Justice Connect’s Not-for-profit law service.
