The Mountains Community Resource Network (MCRN)
is the peak organisation for the community services sector in the Blue Mountains. 

Our goal is to lead and support a sustainable local community sector. 

Join us to keep up-to-date with what is happening in the Blue Mountains community sector!

Membership of MCRN is open to individuals and organisations (community groups, or registrable corporations, or incorporated associations) which agree to work within the Mission, Vision and Objectives of MCRN as outlined in the MCRN Strategic Plan and the MCRN Code of Ethics, and which are located in and/or provide services within the Blue Mountains area and/or to members of the Blue Mountains community.

Membership with MCRN automatically provides access to the Blue Mountains Community Interagency (BMCI) which meets monthly to provide a cross-sectoral forum to both specialist and generalist services – supporting managers and workers in identifying services, new programs, changes in direction, ways to address issues arising for the sector, and opportunities for partnerships.
