Help for clients with a Section 32 order

A Section 32 order is a diversionary order whereby defendants agree to accept treatment and/or support for six months. Legal Aid NSW, in partnership with the Brain Injury Association NSW and the Intellectual Disability Rights Service, has developed What is a Section 32?, a brochure to help lawyers explain the concept of a Section 32 in language that is easy to understand.

The brochure also helps clients understand their obligations under a Section 32 and decide whether they want their lawyer to apply for this order.
