The Right to Information Act 2009 commenced on 1 July 2010 and provides for greater access to information held by government and authorities. The Trust is considered to be a public authority under the Act.
The Act requires government departments to increase the public’s access to information by:
The Trust seeks to ensure that all available and up-to-date information is available via this website. However, it is possible that you may have different or specialist information needs. The Trust will seek to meet your information request informally, without the need of an RTI request.
However, if the Trust believes that certain information should not be actively disclosed, an RTI application is appropriate. This requires the completion of an application form, and payment of a fee of $42.50 (until 30/6/23). You may apply for the fee to be waived in certain circumstances.
