Fulham Correctional Centre is located in Fulham, Victoria, 10 kilometres west of Sale, Victoria.
Fulham is a 947 bed medium and minimum security prison for adult remand and sentenced males, including an 84 bed Nalu Youth Challenge community positioned outside the main prison complex. Fulham is currently the largest prison facility in rural Victoria and with approximately 1,000 prisoners released each year, has a strong focus on transitional services and programs.
Through investment in opportunities for prisoners to engage in work, education and programs, prisoners are not only held safely and securely but given every chance to turn their lives around. Issues behind much of the crime in our communities – such as violent attitudes, anti-social behaviours and the abuse of drugs and alcohol – are addressed through innovative programs and interventions. At the same time helping prisoners with day-to-day challenges such as developing a “work ethic” by gaining and holding down employment and finding a suitable place to live also help prevent a return to crime.
The Manager of Rehabilitation and Reintegration is responsible for the leadership and management of a range of programs that support prisoners to reduce their risk of re-offending and increase positive community reintegration outcomes.
The portfolio includes leadership and management of the clinical team who facilitate offending behaviour and Alcohol and Other Drug interventions, the Assessment and Transition Coordinators responsible for assessing and responding to prisoner transition and reintegration needs, and the activities team who provide prisoners with access to wellbeing, sport and recreational activities. The Manager also oversees the faith and culture portfolio including chaplaincy, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander programs and services.
The position directly supports the General Manager in the administration, leadership, quality assurance and performance management of both internally delivered and contracted rehabilitation and reintegration programs.
