The Community Resource Network WA (formerly WA Telecentre Network) has a proud history of supporting regional communities to access education and training, information and communication technology, and government services.
The Royalties for Regions program funding support has enabled the implementation and development of community projects, assisted with Community Resource Centre (CRC) operations as well as upgrades to both facilities and equipment. This funding has enabled CRCs to be part of the CRC network which aids in the development of community based programs.
Murray House received approval from the Hon Brendan Grylls MLA, Minister for Regional Development to become the Pinjarra Community Resource Centre Inc. in June 2010. The submission demonstrated broad community support that the CRC would support enhanced access to, and delivery of, a wide range of services to the Pinjarra Community
The Pinjarra CRC produces the local newspaper. We offer the facilities to email around the world, enhance job skills, participate in video conferencing, access online banking, get to know local people and offer people the opportunity to do some professional development training.
With the upgraded facilities and minimal room hire charges, it will now be more viable for organisations to travel to Pinjarra providing services otherwise not be available to the local residents. Currently office space is used by organisations including: Forrest Personnel, Walker Wayland, Disability Support Services, Australian Hearing, Peel Legal Service, Community First International and Peel Psychology Services.
