  1. Thank you for the opportunity to apply for the IABC World Conference scholarship. Given Victoria Legal Aid’s financial situation, without a scholarship I would be unable to attend.

    Why I would like to attend the conference: (100 words)

    Due to an increase in demand for legal aid services, particularly relating to family violence, without a corresponding increase in funding, Victoria Legal Aid recently announced significant cuts to eligibility guidelines, services and staff numbers. The organisation has had to prioritise those most in need, so that now not just the poor, but only the poorest get legal aid.
    Communicating this internally and externally has and continues to be extremely challenging. I would like to attend the conference to get inspired with the best ideas and latest trends to sharpen my mind to continue this important communications challenge.
