Established in 1980, PICAL is a part of the Gippsland region's Neighborhood Houses Victoria organization. Neighborhood 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.
To support and empower our community through social inclusion and educational opportunities for all abilities. To lead with integrity and provide assistance where required, responding to community needs with respect, dignity and compassion.
To develop programs that build self-confidence, optimism and resilience to better cope in crisis, reduce disadvantage and enhance success in study, relationships and career.
That every person has the opportunity to achieve their full potential and participate in and contribute to all aspects of community life.
