Wandoo Reintegration Facility

Wandoo Reintegration Facility is a minimum security prison for young men aged 18 – 24. It is the first prison in Western Australia that caters to the unique needs of this age group.

The focus at Wandoo is on preparing offenders for release by providing them with life skills, education and training, and employment opportunities. Wandoo works closely with the not for profit sector which provides services that assist offenders with their transition back into the community, once their sentence is served.

Wandoo is 1 of 2 privately managed prisons in WA, with Acacia medium security prison being the other.  Both are managed by Serco Australia.
