Northern Regional Resource Centre


The Northern Regional Resource Centre, opened in 1983 and based in Launceston, replaced the Omaru Youth Centre. It provided school holiday programs and after school activities, including swimming, judo and gymnastics, for state wards and other children for whom the Department was concerned. The Centre also ran an Independent Living Unit that taught wards of state independent living skills through a six month live-in course. The Centre closed in about 1990.

The Independent Living Unit could take emergency placements.
