The Community Services Program

Offenders can be sentenced to community service at a local Community Correctional Centre. This could be as part of the sentence or it could be because they are not able to pay a fine.

Community service gives the offender an opportunity to repay their debt to the community.

Volunteers assist support staff at a local community service work bases. They help the offender by mentoring and demonstrating positive role modelling and supporting the offender in meaningful work that benefits the community.

Work tasks include:

  • managing clothing donations
  • restoring council benches
  • rejuvenating furniture, and
  • making toys and blankets for schools and kindergartens.

Offenders interested in this program can contact their case manager for details.
