About us

Community Resource Centres (CRCs) are friendly, locally owned and operated service and information centres.

Over 100 centres across the State form the Western Australian Community Resource Network (WACRN), which is supported by the Department of Regional Development (DRD) and the Royalties for Regions initiative.

We are currently co-located with the Plantagenet library and the Great Southern Institute of Technology Mount Barker Campus (intended occupancy date: 1st January 2015). We have other existing organisations who occupy space here at the centre, on a regular basis, to provide services to the community including:
