Community Resource Centres

The Western Australian Community Resource Network (WACRN) is comprised of over 100 rural, remote and regional Community Resource Centres (CRCs). CRCs are not-for-profit organisations that are independently owned and operated by their local communities. 

CRCs are contracted by the Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development (DPIRD) to provide access to government and community services and information, and undertake community, business and economic development activities.

Grant funding is provided to CRCs to engage trainees through the Regional Traineeship Scheme.

Funding is also supplied to provide support services to CRCs.  A review of support service to CRCs was conducted in 2019. Please see Evaluation of Sector Support Services for Community Resource Centres for more information.

Within the Shire of Gingin there are two CRCs - one located in Gingin and the other in Lancelin.
