About WA PCYC

The Federation of Western Australian Police and Community Youth Centres (PCYC) is a not-for-profit organisation creating opportunities for young people and children through the delivery of two broad youth services – development and intervention programs and recreational activities.

Offering young people and children the opportunity to participate in healthy and safe recreational activities and diversionary programs is the core foundation of PCYC.

Operating in 20 locations – 12 regional, 7 metro and one camp facility, along with numerous Blue Light Youth Activities and Police Ranger Units, PCYC achieves strong outcomes for Western Australian communities.

These include a reduction in crimes to and by young people, offering leadership development for young people and volunteers, alternative educational paths and importantly, a safe space for young people and children who may be facing stress in their lives. Stress comes about for many reasons, such as domestic violence, parental abuse of drugs, mental health issues and bullying, to name just a few.

The key partner of PCYC is the Western Australian Police Force. WA police officers work with PCYC, referring young offenders and youth-at-risk to our programs, playing a significant role in early intervention and crime prevention.
