Following the temporary closure that commenced in July 2019, it is with regret that the Management Committee of the Northern Territory Police & Citizens Youth Clubs Association Inc. (PCYC) announce that the PCYC will permanently cease operations.

The closure of the PCYC is attributed to increasing financial difficulties arising from workplace health and safety concerns particularly around ageing infrastructure in need of significant repairs and exacerbated by Cyclone Marcus, rising cost structures, operational challenges and the inability to secure adequate funding. These significant challenges have left PCYC in a precarious financial position with limited capacity to meet current and ongoing liabilities.
