The North-West Regional Resource Unit replaced the Lucinda Resource Centre. The new Unit opened on the same site, the former Weeroona Girls' Training Centre at Latrobe. In 1988, it moved to new offices in Burnie. The Centre closed during the 1990s.
The Unit undertook a range of activities designed to support families so that their children did not have to become state wards. These included a homemaker service, parenting groups, and an early intervention program. The Unit also ran an independent living unit.
