Nalu at Fullham Correctional Centre is a minimum security correctional facility located outside the main walls of Fulham Correctional Centre in Sale, Victoria. It is a state-funded facility that is run by GEO Group Australia, which runs Fulham as well.
It is set up as a special unit for first time young offenders aged 18–25 who are at minimum security rating. The facility is made up of small cottages which house four prisoners each. They are given weekly allowances for grocery shopping and have to prepare their own meals. There are basketball courts, games facilities, and a gym. A second pre-release program at Nalu caters for all eligible inmates (regardless of age) at Fulham who are nearing release
The prisoners take part in a 16-week Challenge program, where they learn to deal with their offences in an active way. The program includes camping, trust exercises and a cognitive skills program.
Famous quotes containing the word centre:
“Old politicians, like old actors, revive in the limelight. The vacancy which afflicts them in private momentarily lifts when, once more, they feel the eyes of an audience upon them. Their old passion for holding the centre of the stage guides their uncertain footsteps to where the footlights shine, and summons up a wintry smile when the curtain rises.”
—Malcolm Muggeridge (19031990)
