Legal Aid promotes Blurred Borders kit

Legal Aid Queensland has hit the road to promote its new kit designed to improve communication and outcomes for Indigenous clients in the justice system.

Blurred Borders Queensland is a set of resources designed to help Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander clients in the justice system understand the law and their legal rights.

The resources have been designed for use by a range of service providers across the legal, education, health, public administration and community sectors.

By using visual storytelling and plain language, the resources break down legal concepts and help people communicate more effectively about the law. They help clients make informed legal choices, and actively take part in legal processes.

The kits were primarily designed for use with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, but they can also be used with young people, people from culturally and linguistically diverse communities, people with low literacy and people with a disability.

The resources were adapted from the original Blurred Borders project, created by Legal Aid WA and NT Legal Aid Commission.


Legal Aid Queensland will conduct free, half-day training sessions on the Blurred Borders resources at 13 sites between Southport and Cairns across October and November.
