Women Connect Changed Operations

Hello women friends,

Most of you are probably aware that “Women Connect”, as an essential part of Phillip Island Community and Learning Centre (PICAL), will be part of the big move later this year to our new premises in Warley Avenue, Cowes.


At this stage, we are not sure what shape or form Women Connect will operate under once we've moved but until then, due to the spread of Covid-19 throughout our community plus a range of other changing circumstances, Women Connect will be in a slightly different way for the time being.


Women Connect is open for friendly connection with other women, or work at our free computer stations (and some other traditional services) on the following days and times:


  • Mondays and Wednesdays 10 am-1 pm. (Friendly volunteers available to assist)


“Tech Fixit Club” with Ajanta is operating in conjunction with Women Connect 

(Device & computer solutions, downloading vax certificates, myGov, Service Victoria, Medicare, Emails, Updating booster shots, etc) on:


  • Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10am-2 pm 

  • During these Tech Fixit Club times, women can still access our Women Connect room for quiet self-guided computer work

  • Bookings through PICAL reception


There will be a host of changes affecting PICAL this year, so in preparation we are trying to review and consolidate all of our operating arrangements, including the merging of several different websites and Facebook pages under the single website and under our main Facebook page.  For further information on all PICAL programs, including Women Connect, from now on please check out these PICAL online portals.


Thanks for your patience and continued support.

PICAL Management
