Established in 1980, PICAL is a part of the Gippsland region's Neighbourhood Houses Victoria organisation. Neighbourhood Houses aim to bring people together to connect, learn and contribute in their local community through social, educational, recreational and support activities, using a community-based approach. Here at PICAL we work towards developing strategies to improve our community whilst understanding and valuing its uniqueness. We endeavour to provide a strong, safe and vibrant community that values diversity and gender equity.

PICAL is also registered as a Learn Local Provider which means some of our courses receive Victorian Government funding making them more affordable to our priority learner groups.  These courses address the particular needs of those adults who have experienced barriers to education in the past and need some help to take the first step back to education, training and or employment.
