NRCG is an Approved Work and Development Order Organisation
The Northern Rivers Community Gateway is pleased to announce that we are now an approved organisation in the Work and Development Order (WDO) scheme, pursuant 99A of the Fines Act 1996.
The NRCG has an extensive suite of programs and services, working collaboratively with clients, community members, service providers and groups to offer person centred solutions. We offer individualised case management, voluntary unpaid work, along with financial and other counselling as part of a WDO agreement.
The primary aim of the WDO scheme is to provide a non-monetary way for people to reduce their fine debt. It is also hoped that WDOs will reduce secondary offending due to fine default, and strengthen client engagement with the NRCG and other services and support networks. The NRCG philosophy of wrap around service provision and individualised case management works with clients and service providers to tailor the WDO to the capacity and needs of the client.
