York CRC


The York Community Resource Centre (CRC) was formally opened in August 1999  by the Hon. Hendy Cowan MLA and then Deputy Premier of WA and at that time was known as the York Telecentre Inc.   Over the years this non-profit community based organisation has been lead by passionate members of the community and has grown and changed in line with the needs of that community. In 2010, and after nearly 20 years for some of the almost 100 Centres throughout regional WA, Telecentre's were renamed Community Resource Centres, a reflection on the nature of these important service hubs. The Centre is administered by a Management Committee, Manager, staff and volunteers. It derives its income from membership fees, charging for services and products, and contract agreements.
Our Centre delivers a range of services and programs.  We engage with our community through economic, business and social development and aim to build capacity in all aspects of our people, town and region.
