WPRD petitioned Lachlan Shire Council in 2007 to manage the Youth Services Program in Condobolin, Lake Cargelligo, Tullibigeal and Tottenham. Youth Services was developed by the community based Central West Youth Support Group, and was and is still funded by Lachlan Shire Council. This program has been running continually and assists in the organisation and delivery of youth specific programs and activities, which target the underprivileged and disadvantaged minority youth sectors.
Funded through the Department of Human Resources WPRD is contracted each year to provided Centrelink Services through the Condobolin Agency.
The Agency is open from 9-1.30 Monday to Friday and services and average of 150 people per week.
This keeps people accessing services locally and keeps their business in town.
