How will Funding Cuts Affect NCRC

The Fight for Community Resource Centre Funding

It's Over to You...

We recently wrote an article for the local community newspaper sharing the bad news about what upcoming funding cuts will mean for the Northcliffe's Community Resource Centre.

What does a 40% funding cut look like?

Northcliffe CRC prints the Karri Pigeon which this article appeared in and provides a huge amount of support to the publishers, Northcliffe Community Development. We partner with and/or provide resources and services for pretty much every significant community group in town including the Pioneer Museum, the Recreation Centre, Southern Forest Arts, Northcliffe Family and Community Centre, Men's Shed, the Soccer Club, Crowea Village, the Golf Club and many more. We also support our local businesses with resources and printing, marketing support and more. We developed and operate this website, and we have 105 financial memberships, which include families, businesses and individuals. In a town the size of Northcliffe this is pretty amazing! We believe this makes us Northcliffe's most well supported and depended upon community organisation. The range of activities and regular resources and support we provide is a whole seperate article which we will be writing soon. If you live in Northcliffe you know the value of our CRC. Many other regional communities in WA with CRCs will be feeling the same right now.

If you share our concerns and want to make a difference then please write to the Minister responsible for these cuts:

Honourable Alannah MacTiernan MLC
Minister for Regional Development
11th Floor, Dumas House
2 Havelock Street

Otherwise you can phone the Minister's office on (08)65526200 or email

You may also want to talk to your local member (especially if they are a member of the Labor party), or write to the State Premier's office.
