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.
Marngoneet is a medium security prison situated in Lara outside Geelong. The centre primarily houses sentenced prisoners. PLEA’s programs at Marngoneet commenced in 2016.
Each fortnight PLEA presents our Court Readiness program, with a focus on case management and understanding the legal process. On a rotating basis PLEA also presents on specialist legal areas including Parole, Family Law and Civil Law. The Civil Law program is PLEA’s newest program and equips prisoners to manage debts, fines and other civil issues that impact them while incarcerated and post-release.
