About Ravenhall Correctional Centre

Ravenhall is a 1300 bed medium security prison for adult sentenced and unsentenced males. Its contemporary campus-style design reflects four accommodation communities with varying profiles: 1) induction and transition, 2) youth and indigenous, 3) challenging behaviours and more settled prisoners and 4) protection. Community accommodation is complimented by a further 75-bed Forensic Mental Health Unit, 25-bed Unit for prisoners with significant challenging behaviours, and a 25-bed Mission Unit designed to respond intensively and therapeutically to current community issues. In recognition of the importance of Continuum of Care, Ravenhall extends its presence into the community by providing ex-prisoners with access to post-release support at GEO’s Community Reintegration Centre.

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 gaining and holding down employment and finding a suitable place to live also help prevent a return to crime.

Ravenhall’s unprecedented emphasis on offender rehabilitation and reintegration is evidenced by a significantly sized team of clinicians, working in concert with a number of Victoria’s most respected organisations including Forensicare, Correct Care, YMCA and Kangan Institute. Together, Ravenhall provides an integrated service system that collaboratively brings about lasting positive change in the lives of prisoners pre- and post-release. Through these partnerships the objective of Safer Victorian Communities is achieved.
