To protect, to rehabilitate and to serve

Repay WA - Rehabilitation

Repay WA is a community work program that operates throughout WA and can be ordered by the Courts or Fines Enforcement Registry. Repay WA allows offenders to repay their debt to society and increase their work and life skills via contribution to important non-for-profit projects in the community.

In 20012-2013, offenders performed more than 117,000 hours of work on 270 unpaid community work projects. At any one time, there are about 400 community work projects operating from Derby to Albany, saving WA taxpayers more than $1.8 million.

Offenders have to be assessed as suitable to take part in Repay WA work. There is more information about eligibility on Community Based Orders (PDF 126 KB) fact sheet.

Repay WA relies on not-for-profit and community organisations to nominate work projects that provide meaningful work opportunities for offenders. Community work projects may include graffiti and vandalism clean-ups, landscaping, recycling or restoration projects.

To nominate a project, simply complete a Repay WA Application Form or visit the Business with us page.
