Kimberley Language Resource Centre

The Kimberley Language Resource Centre (KLRC) is the peak regional language organisation in the Kimberley region of Western Australia. Established in 1984 as an incorporated, independent, community-based Aboriginal organisation, the KLRC supports Kimberley Aboriginal people to continue using their languages. The KLRC provides skills workshops and project advice and supports research for language groups across the region, representing at least 44 known languages, about 30 of which are spoken or known. It has strong community support from across the region and engages with a significant number of stakeholders locally, regionally and nationally. The organisation is currently beginning negotiations with the federal government for the restoration of operational funding. At this time volunteer support is critical.
