WORK DEVELOPMENT ORDER (WDO)
The WDO offers vulnerable young people aged 12 - 17 the opportunity to clear OUTSTANDING fines by helping out at BYS
WDOs are available to anyone who is homeless or in acute financial hardship, as well as people living with mental illness, intellectual disability, cognitive impairment or serious addiction.
The Work and Development Order (WDO) Scheme is an initiative that offers vulnerable young people (aged 12 — 17) the opportunity to clear outstanding fines with activities at the youth service like volunteer work, counselling, and participation in courses or programs.
Byron Youth Service is working together with Legal Aid NSW and the Aboriginal Legal Service (NSW) to link eligible clients with the program.
