Journal Club, established in 2009 is a monthly facilitated discussion and support group delivered through PCA Families. Each month Journal Club discusses an article relevant to parenting in home-based care and adoption.

Journal Club offers members an opportunity to share with other parents and carers the unique experiences of parenting children through home-based care and adoption. It 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 Collingwood is held from 7.30 - 9.00pm on the first Thursday of every month, except January.  Topics for discussion are communicated via emailed to members a week prior to the date.  

[Please note that after two years we are back to Thursday evening Journal Clubs.]
