To support people in the pursuit of their interests and aspirations, PPCG has a program of pre-accredited ACFE-funded courses which develop knowledge and skills, build confidence and increase social participation.

Most of this is provided in partnership with community organisations. We use our ‘lap tops on legs’, so everything is provided.
