To protect, to rehabilitate and to serve

Boronia Pre-release Centre for Women


Bookings for social visits have now reopened. Health measures, physical distancing and limits to visitor numbers will apply.

Boronia Pre-release Centre for Women manages minimum-security female prisoners and their children in a community-style setting, and adopts a forward-looking model that recognises the diverse needs of women in prison. Read Boronia's Guiding Philosophy (PDF 56 KB).

Boronia prepares women for re-entry into the community by offering meaningful rehabilitation activities and work placements. These are designed to address the unique needs of women prisoners and provide them with practical skills.

Women can enrol in traineeships in areas such as hospitality through the centre's hospitality and catering program, horticulture, retail operations, asset management and retail supervision. They also take part in valuable work in the local community for businesses and not-for-profit organisations.

Boronia has a strong focus on maintaining links with the local community through their affiliation with the Community Engagement and Advisory Group (CEAG) who provides community input, feedback and involvement into the centre's operations.
