PCA Families Board is looking to appoint a Program Director to lead a small and dedicated team and to support the CEO in implementing business, marketing and operational plans across the organisation.

To find out more or apply, see the Position Description here on Ethical Jobs.


PCA Families has a long history of volunteer involvement. We started in 2002 when a group of parents, carers and professionals started meeting with a view to establishing a support service which was independent of placement agencies and which provided training and support to those involved in permanent care, adoption, kinship care and foster care. The organisation was incorporated in 2003 as Post Placement Support Service. It was largely run by volunteers, with only a small amount of paid staff time until 2010.

PCA Families continues to value the role of volunteers as an integral part of a peer-informed approach incorporating learning from lived experience.

Current Volunteer Positions

PCA Families has the following opportunities for volunteers within the organisation:

  • Communications Officer
  • Peer Support Mentors/Facilitators
