Launch of the Work and Development Permit (WDP) Information Package

The Work and Development Permit (WDP) Scheme is a social justice initiative by Fines Victoria that allows eligible people to ‘work off’ their unpaid fines by engaging with health practitioners & organisations (known as ‘sponsors’). Sponsors provide treatment, courses and other activities and report participation to help reduce this debt.

Peninsula Community Legal Centre (PCLC) has received funding from the Legal Services Board to develop the WDP Information Package.  This does not replace reading material provided by the Fines Victoria WDP Team.

The WDP Information Package is designed to assist sponsors (health practitioners and organisations) integrate the WDP Scheme and includes –

  1. Sponsor Poster: Editable PDF format
  2. WDP Brochure
  3. Client Intake Sheet: Optional fillable PDF form (incl. pg. 2 Fines Victoria Information Consent Form)
  4. Client Attendance Sheet: Optional fillable PDF form

You can access the WDP Information Package at http://pclc.org.au/get-information/information-about-us/
