Diversionary programs - community residential facilities

Corrective Services manages residential facilities for men and women. In some instances the Courts order offenders to participate in a diversionary program at one of the residential facilities rather than go into custody.

The facilities include:

  • Miruma which opened in 2011 on the grounds of the Cessnock Correctional Complex. It is a residential community-based diversionary program for female offenders with co-existing disorders.

    Miruma aims to provide high level of effective case management to address offending behaviour and provide the female residents with the skills to be able to live independently and productively in the community.

  • Balund-a in Tabulam  is an innovative residential diversionary program for male offenders between 18 and 40 years of age.
