About Us

PPCG has been working with the community for over 40 years. It operates from four sites in the City of Port Phillip – St Kilda, South Melbourne, Port Melbourne and St Kilda East.

We provide services to multiple target groups from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds, with a range of presenting and cross-over issues. These issues are often complex.  To address these issues we provide a range of centre-based and outreach programs and services:

  • Information, referral and support
  • Emergency relief, material aid and financial counselling
  • Community development and personal advocacy
  • Skills development and pathways to further education and employment
  • Creative, recreational and social groups and activities in partnership with the community
  • Social advocacy regarding inequity, social exclusion and poverty

 


Vision, Mission, Principles, Values & Approach

Our Vision:
A fair and just society that values all people.

Our Mission:
Positively impact lives through fostering and improving equity, participation and inclusion.

Our Principles:
We integrate the Victorian Charter of Human Rights which promote freedom, respect, equality and dignity with the universal social justice principles of access, rights, self-determination and participation.

Our Values:
We value integrity in all our relationships, critical reflection of, and innovation in, our processes, good governance and efficient operating practices, and the development and nurturing of community participation and capacity building.

Our Approach:
We use strengths-based and community development approaches to foster improved quality of life, social health, education, and employment. These approaches empower individuals and communities to take control of their lives in meaningful and sustainable ways. We will work with the broader community to foster opportunities and social inclusion, and to reduce marginalisation.
