As a major employer, the department is in a strong position to play a lead role in helping shift attitudes and drive positive change for people with disability, as clients, service users and staff with disability.

A key initiative to support people with disability is the department’s Disability Scholarship Program (the Program). This initiative, under the department’s Disability action plan Framework 2019 - 2022, aims to support employment pathways for people with disability across all areas of justice.

Annual scholarships are awarded to Victorian students with disability studying at the diploma, advanced diploma, undergraduate or postgraduate level. Scholarships are offered in the following areas of study:

  • law
  • criminology
  • paralegal work
  • psychology
  • social work
  • other justice-related fields.
