Fulham Correctional Centre, located in Sale, is Victoria’s largest regional correctional centre.
First opened in 1997, Fulham delivers its 845 sentenced and unsentenced adult male prisoners education and vocational training to support future employment, reintegration support and faith and cultural programs.
Unique to Fulham, a specialist treatment community offers prisoners opportunities to engage in intensive rehabilitation programs in addition to peer mentoring and case-management. Prisoners are supported to develop goals addressing their individual risks and needs and prepare for their release.
Fulham is home to another distinctive initiative; its Nalu Challenge Community – a minimum security unit accommodating prisoners preparing for release and 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 has successfully improved 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 was awarded Victorian Employer of the Year in 2011 in recognition of Fulham’s outstanding staff training and development standards.
