In August 2007, the Community Service Rejuvenation Project was established to address the decline in the level of community service work performed, down from 1.6million hours per year in 1999-2000 to less than 343,000 hours in 2007-2008.
The Community Service Rejuvenation Project will develop and implement a revised model for the management and supervision of Community Service Orders under the sponsorship of the Probation and Parole Directorate.
The new model will include strategies for implementing stronger workplace practice to support a more professional approach to sourcing and operating community service projects. The strategy will include engaging local governments, councils and local community advisory committees for the purpose of enhancing collaborative community service projects within the community.
To increase the capability and capacity in the supervision of Community Service Orders.
