CRR Workshops

The Food Relief Framework identified workforce development needs via conversations with emergency relief and charity food providers across Western Australia. WACOSS responded to this need by developing a range of free short workshops on topics related to the frontline provision of community relief services in WA.

CRR Forum

The Community Relief and Resilience (CRR) Forum meets monthly, and provides a space for community services who deliver community and emergency relief to:

  • Share information on emerging trends in the sector.
  • Network with other services and Government representatives.
  • Listen to guest speakers on topics relevant to the CRR sector.
  • Identify issues through service provision provided by CRR providers.
  • Stay up-to-date on our advocacy and policy work, and feed into these submissions and reports.
