Picabeen Community Association Inc. is a not-for-profit organisation located in North West Brisbane and it has been operating since 1992.

Picabeen is easily accessible by public transport and the adjoining parklands provide a peaceful shady backdrop to participants who share, learn and celebrate the diversity of our community.

A grass roots approach to the identified needs of our community ensures targeted support services for vulnerable people and a wide range of services and activities for all community members.

Youth workers provide individualised support and pathways to empower vulnerable young people aged 10-18 years. Homework help is also provided for this age group. Check out Events and the Calendar for the latest information.

Joining in activities can mean having fun, making new friends and learning new skills. You may be new to this part of town or your life circumstances may have changed.  We also invite you to share the Picabeen opportunities with those who are challenged by literacy or English language skills.

Neighbourhood Centre activities and Youth Support Services receive recurrent funding from the Department of Communities, Child Safety and Disability Services. The premises are leased from Brisbane City Council. Other grants and donations enable Picabeen to offer a wider range of services and activities.

Our dedicated team of volunteers provide invaluable support for activities and the friendly efficient service you will experience. They also enjoy the benefit of knowing that they make a difference.

Tertiary students from a wide range of disciplines enjoy the opportunities to share and increase their skills and knowledge during their student placements at Picabeen.

Enquiries about room hire for daytime, evening or weekend are welcomed.

Contact us for more information and be sure to tell your friends. We welcome feedback and suggestions so that Picabeen can continually improve services and activities.
