Do you have fines?
Are you interested in reducing your fines by attending Care's Budgeting For Life money management workshops for approved Work or Development Program (ACT) or Work and Development Order (NSW) participants?
Participants, who are registered for a WDP/O with Access Canberra or Revenue NSW, can attend 1, 2, 3 or 4 sessions. Each session contributes to reducing an infringement fine by $200. Attending all 4 sessions contributes $800.
Workshops will be held in November 2020. To attend you must first be approved by Access Canberra or Revenue NSW before undertaking the workshops for credit to be applied to your fines.
