Won Wron Prison
HM Prison Won Wron was a minimum security Australian prison located in Won Wron, Victoria. It was closed in late 2004. The State Government then announced a new program for Indigenous Adult Residential Diversion. The program, is located at the former Won Wron prison site in Yarram, Gippsland and aims to rehabilitate Koori offenders. Young adult Indigenous males who have been placed on Community Based Orders and who would otherwise live in general community while fulfilling that order can take part in the program.
Participants volunteer to ‘live-in’ during the program which will help then avoid re-offending, improve job prospects, reduce substance abuse and improve their overall health. The program has been set up in response to the Royal Commission into Aboriginal Deaths in Custody (RCIADIC) and developed in partnership with Victorias indigenous community. Diston Wastewater Technology installed a sewage treatment plant and irrigation system.
