About us

The Difference We Make

Throughout 2021-21 we recorded over 275,000 attendances to our Centres across the state. Since we began in 1941, children and young people have joined PCYC for many reasons. Some children come to enjoy after school care activities, some seek comfort from challenging home or school environments, and some are referred to PCYC by the Western Australia Police Force, the Department of Education or the Juvenile Justice System to take part in diversionary programs, alternative learning courses or just as a safe place to hang out.

Across WA, we’re working hard to ensure there is a PCYC Centre or outreach activity where children need our services.

We’re proud to have Centres across the state, from Albany to Broome and many in-between, partnering with the Police to serve the community and create opportunities for children and young people. We also support 37 Blue Light WA™ Units for children to access fun activities in a safe environment in remote and regional areas where there is no PCYC Centre.
