"Many hearts, one community"
We are an incorporated not-for-profit community organisation providing a wide range of community services and learning opportunities to support the needs of all age groups on Phillip Island and surrounds.
Our diverse range of programs and activities offer everything from age-old arts and crafts, to pathways for further study and employment. Each week members of our community enjoy our safe, friendly and stimulating environment in which every individual is informed and empowered to achieve to their full potential.
PICAL provides a vital service to those who find themselves experiencing financial hardship through our emergency food relief service known as PICAL’s Phil Dixon Pantry, as well as support through services such as counseling, free hearing tests, employment services and a Centrelink Agency. There is a number of community spaces available for use and hire suitable for meetings, training, social gatherings and community groups. In addition, the PICAL Community Garden is a local food project, with opportunities for activities such as organic vegetable and fruit growing workshops, food swaps, and access to local fresh produce.
PICAL relies on the assistance of our valuable community volunteers across the Centre. We are able to offer many opportunities for volunteer participation in all aspects of our activities.
So come see what's on offer, we can't wait to meet you!
