Correctional Centre

Fulham Correctional Centre, located in Sale, first opened in 1997 and is Victoria’s largest regional correctional centre.

Fulham delivers employment, education and vocational training, and offending behaviour, reintegration, faith, cultural and life skills programs to sentenced and unsentenced prisoners.

Fulham is home to another distinctive initiative – its Nalu Community Transition Program. Nalu is a minimum security unit accommodating prisoners preparing for release and who are approved to undertake community-based activities. With a strong focus on community reparation and release planning, Nalu has proven itself highly effective in reducing the risk of reoffending.


Fulham has also developed GATEWAY® – an innovative prison operating system that has been adopted by other Victorian correctional centres. It offers structured case-management processes and effective scheduling and monitoring of activities for each of Fulham’s prisoners. GATEWAY® contributes to successful rehabilitative outcomes for prisoners in our care.

Fulham Correctional Centre has been continually managed by GEO on behalf of Corrections Victoria since opening in 1997.

The centre has received the coveted Victorian Employer of the Year award in recognition of Fulham’s outstanding staff training and development standards.
