Community Resource Centres (CRCs)
The Western Australian Community Resource Network (WACRN) is comprised of over 100 rural, remote and regional CRCs. CRCs are not-for-profit organisations that are independently owned and operated by their local communities. Go to www.crc.net.au for comprehensive information about the location and services of each CRC.
CRCs are contracted by the Department of Regional Development (DRD) to provide access to government and community services and information, and undertake community, business and economic development activities.
DRD has also provided grant funding to Linkwest for the delivery of governance and management support services to the WACRN.
The WACRN is supported by the Department of Regional Development (DRD) through funding from the State Government's Royalties for Regions program.
