Bennett Brook Disability Justice Centre

 

Overview

The Bennett Brook Disability Justice Centre aims to provide a suitable and appropriate option for housing people who have been deemed mentally impaired and unfit to stand trial because of their disability. As Western Australia’s first declared placed, it will support people who do not belong in prison, but need to learn behaviour that aligned with community standards. The centre’s goal is to give people the necessary life skills and experience to help them when they eventually do return to community living.

The cases of these people are managed by the Mentally Impaired Accused Review Board. This Board will make recommendations to the Minister for Disability Services regarding residents of the centre.

The centre provides a place of residence for up to 10 people with security and supervision by appropriately trained Disability Services Commission staff. The centre is funded by the Disability Services Commission.
