About Us

The Denmark Community Resource Centre is a not-for-profit organisation that has been in operation since 1996. Located in the heart of the Denmark township at 2 Strickland Street we encourage sustainable growth, capacity building and resilience within the Denmark community.

We provide room hire, equipment hire, administration services, training, printing facilities, high speed internet, IT support, community information and Centrelink and Medicare support.
