Corrections Victoria partnered with Parklands to provide a quality community service order program in the Wodonga area for more than 20 years.
During this time, Corrections volunteers made a significant contribution towards developing the regional parklands. Some participants were subsequently able to secure employment in the industry, and others returned to Parklands as volunteers after completing their community service order hours, due to the sense of community they experienced in the program.
Corrections Victoria have also supported Parklands in other ways including:
- Donation of tools and equipment,
- Provision of a Weekend Supervisor for weekend volunteer programs,
- On ground works by the Landmates crew,
- Annual tree planting mornings by Department of Justice staff from the Wodonga, Wangaratta and Shepparton offices.
