Courses may help ease SPER debts

Not-for-profit organisations can apply to become a SPER Hardship Partner to help disadvantaged clients pay off a debt by participating in courses.

A Hardship Partner can help eligible SPER customers to resolve debts with a Work and Development Order (WDO), which involves unpaid work, courses, counselling or treatment translated into a dollar value.

A SPER customer may be eligible for a WDO if they cannot pay their debt due to financial hardship; mental illness; domestic and family violence; homelessness; intellectual or cognitive disability; or substance-use disorder.
