PLEA’s program delivery has been impacted by restrictions in place to address the risks of COVID-19 entering the prison system. This has included the suspension of in-person program delivery in many cases. Information on this page may not reflect current operation.
Barwon Prison is a maximum security male prison located in Lara outside Geelong. Barwon is the PLEA’s project newest centre to commence presentations.
PLEA presents our Court Readiness program and a rotating series of sessions covering Parole, Family Law and Civil Law. These programs are targeted towards sentenced prisoners to allow them to address issues while incarcerated and begin preparation for release.
