At the heart of an active, vibrant
and engaged community.


Coronavirus (COVID-19) update, 4 November 2021

Given the current high infection rates and risks, most SPCC programs have decided to remain online until January 2022. However some SPCC groups might return to face to face activities before the end of the year. To find out more please contact our reception on 9645 1476 or email admin@southportcc.org.au Thanks for your patience and understanding.

Port Phillip Welcomers

Port Phillip Welcomers program connects volunteers with Port Phillip residents who are socially isolated due to the impacts of COVID19. Our Welcomers will provide friendly social contact and engagement, general information and referral services via telephone/video, connecting with isolated Port Phillip residents who are at home and without support during the COVID19 pandemic. SPCC is partnering with SHIP and Port Melbourne Rotary on this important initiative and would like to thank them and the Port Philip Council for their support during these challenging times.

I enjoyed my time at PMNC (now SPCC) completing the ARCS Applied Reception Customer Service course, learning skills to become a receptionist. It greatly suited me when I was looking for a job and to change into a new customer service industry. I managed to succeed in my search for a job in a call centre. I am happy to have found a workplace that supports my needs and allows me to put into practice what I learned at PMNC. I highly recommend anyone who wants positive change in their lives to enrol at PMNC. You’ll be glad you did!
