Fulham Correctional Centre is located in Sale, Victoria, 200km east of Melbourne.
Fulham has been continually managed by GEO on behalf of Corrections Victoria since opening in 1997. It is Victoria's largest regional correctional centre.
Fulham’s primary role is to safely and securely house 845 adult male prisoners and progress their sentence plans by delivering a comprehensive range of educational, training, vocational and cognitive-behavioural programs. Together, these lower a prisoner's risk of reoffending.
A key area of Fulham's operations is the Nalu Challenge Community. Located next to the main prison site, Nalu's 68 prisoners benefit from an intensive program of community reparation, leadership/team work challenges, and preparation for reintegration into the community.
General Manager's Message
"Fulham Correctional Centre and Nalu embrace Better Corrections Safer Communities through the provision of quality programs that challenge prisoners to address their offending behaviour.
We lead through innovation with the development and facilitation of programs that provide prisoners with the knowledge and tools that will assist them to become productive community members.
We strive to establish and maintain community standards of behaviour and hold prisoners accountable for their behaviour and actions.
Fulham and Nalu develop strong partnerships with our clients and communities that provide prisoners transitioning to the community with the highest level of network support that reduces reoffending.
We will continue to deliver the highest standard of correctional services that the community demands and respond with speed and flexibility to our customer’s needs."
Trevor Craig, Fulham Correctional Centre General Manager
In the Corrections Victoria Community Work Partnership Awards, Fulham was the winner in the ‘Best in Gippsland Region’ category for its decade long relationship with Wellington Council, and a winner in the ‘Most Outstanding New Project’ category for its Learning Whilst Repairing (Reparation and Restoration) program.
In an outstanding achievement, Fulham is named Victorian Employer of the Year 2011 for its world-class courses and correctional practice training.
Program development is a particular strength of Fulham. Fulham's in-house developed Alcohol and Other Drug program and MOVED program, motivate prisoners to address their offending behaviours, including substance abuse and violence. University evaluation has confirmed the value of delivering these interventions.
Fulham performs well against state and national averages.
Responding to an opportunity to enhance case management processes, Fulham’s IT-enabled case management system, Gateway, assists staff across Fulham to make entries and observations into a prisoner's case file. Case files are the foundation of prisoner risk management, and high quality case notes have a direct role to play in creating safer communities.
