Community Resource Centres are a hub for the community that are locally governed and locally staffed. The key component of CRCs service is to provide access to and support with technology. CRCs also offer support and training to local businesses: opportunities for individuals and families to work, play and learn. We also provide vital access to goverment services.
When CRCs where first built they were known as Telecentres, with the first one opening in Broome in 1991. Telecentres were originally established to provide Interenet access, and as remote learning centres in small to medium regional towns, most with populations of 3,000 or less. More centres were built with the interest from the communities wanting to establish one. In 2009 The centres rebranded and became Community Resource Centres. Each CRC is a different as the communities they serve, providing the services that the community will need.
