If you need to deliver information and/or services to regional Western Australia – CRCs are your local connection!
Many private businesses, government and non-government organisations are partnering with CRCs to expand their service delivery to regional communities across the State.
The following are some of the innovative and unique partnerships that have been established with CRCs.
- Workforce Development Centres (WDC) assist individuals of any age and at any point throughout their lives to make informed educational, training and occupational choices. The services and facilities of CRCs are employed to help achieve this objective. CRCs refer clients to WDCs and provide IT facilities free-of-charge for WDC participants.
- Ngala is a not-for-profit provider of early parenting services delivering Parent education Workshops that explore the importance of growth and development of a child during the first six years of life. Ngala uses CRC facilities, such as meeting rooms and video conferencing equipment, for their workshops and rely on the CRC community outreach capacity to assist with attendance.
- Rural in Reach Health Program provides health and well-being services to people in rural and remote areas. Currently the program delivers health and well-being services to rural and remote women using CRC videoconferencing technology in private meeting rooms.
- TAFE colleges are located in six regional areas which operate campuses from Albany in the south to Kununurra in the north:
- Durack Institute of Technology (Geraldton)
- C.Y. O’Connor College of TAFE (Northam)
- Great Southern Institute of Technology (Albany)
- Kimberley TAFE (Broome)
- Pilbara TAFE (Karratha)
- South West Regional College of TAFE (Bunbury)
CRCs promote TAFE training courses, provide the necessary IT facilities and assist participants with their enrolment and queries.
- Western Australian Council of Social Service (WACOSS) provides award winning training and consulting programs to the non-government community services sector, including CRCs. WACOSS training assists organisations to develop socially just, professional and compassionate services, particularly for disadvantaged and vulnerable members of the community. Training is provided to CRC staff members and to regional businesses through the CRCs.
The WACRN and the Department of Regional Development and Lands welcome the growth of partnership opportunities. CRC’s provide an affordable service for government and non-government organisations to deliver community and capacity building services and programs.
