Providing education and support to deliver better outcomes for children and families in permanent care and adoption

PCA Families Journal Club

Established in 2009, Journal Club is a monthly facilitated discussion and support group delivered through the Permanent Care and Adoptive Families.

Each month, Journal Club discusses an article relevant to parenting in home-based care and adoption. It offers members an opportunity to connect with other parents and carers and to share with them the unique and common experiences of parenting children through home-based care and adoption.

Journal Club allows confidential conversations around the challenges of parenting and is facilitated by skilled volunteers with lived experience in raising children through home-based care and adoption.

Journal Club occurs on the first Thursday of each month (except January - check calendar for dates) at Collingwood Library, 11 Stanton Street, Abbotsford from 8:00pm – 9.30pm.

Due to COVID-19, Journal Club is operating via zoom.  Check your emails for zoom details or call 03 9020 1833 or alternatively email

RSVP not required, you can just attend.
