Mental health rosters

Closed 28 Jan 2018

Opened 30 Nov 2017


Legal Aid Services has recently undergone changes to our operating model, which has resulted in the consolidation of all our offices into two. One of the primary reasons for this change is to ensure we are providing nationally consistent services to our customers and providers, regardless of where they are in New Zealand.

To that end, we have now embarked upon a review of the way that mental health legal aid cases are assigned to providers nationwide.

This consultation paper discusses changes that we are proposing to the way mental health cases are assigned and how the rosters are managed:

We are seeking your comments on the proposed changes. This can be submitted below or by email to Please send us your comments by Sunday 28 January 2018 when the consultation will close.
