FISH’s Community Work Project provides participants with a safe, healthy and fulfilling environment in which to satisfy the obligations of Court-imposed community work orders.
FISH has partnered with the Department of Justice WA to establish the Bawoorrooga Community Project as an approved Community Work Project host. FISH-Bawoorrooga is also an approved host location for certain youth on remand.
By offering this safe and engaging environment within the Fitzroy Valley, FISH’s Bawoorrooga project has already managed to divert several young people into meaningful community work and away from the prison system. Several of these participants have subsequently gone on to take up rewarding employment elsewhere – a great achievement for them and the ideal outcome for our society.
