The Grim Fate Facing Wheatbelt and Avon Valley Community Rescource Centres

More than 30 Community Resource Centres in Central Wheatbelt and Avon Valley could face a funding slash by more than 40 per cent as of next year.

Quairading Community Resource Centre is one of many vital institutions in the area that bring small communities together and assist with personal, economic, community and business development.
