Established as a Citizens Advice Bureau (CAB) in 1980 Southern Peninsula Community Support and Information Centre (SPCSIC) has grown into a trusted and vital service for the local community. SPCSIC operates in partnership with other community and charitable groups plus local and national Government agencies. Major funding is provided by the Mornington Peninsula Shire who also provide our premises. Funding for emergency relief is supplied by the Department of Social Security, supplemented by donations from philanthropic trusts and charitable organisations.
Thanks to the wonderful partnerships SPCSIC has built over the years it has grown from its modest beginnings into a dynamic and proactive service for the local community.
SPCSIC is managed by a volunteer Board of Management and staffed by a full-time CEO and Program Coordinator, and small, mostly part time, paid staff, Volunteer Support Coordinators, Low Income Support Worker and Family Support Worker, as well as over 60 dedicated volunteers. Most of our programs are delivered by our wonderful, hard-working volunteers, without whom we would not be able to provide our services to the community.
