Our Vision. A sustainable community, based on a spirit of friendship, where everybody can feel valued and supported

Dunmanway Family Resource Centre is one of 106 Family Resource Centres, (FRC) in the country under the umbrella of the Child and Family Agency (Tusla). We are part of a programme called the Family and Community services Resource Centre programme. The aim of the programme is to combat disadvantage and improve supports to families, individuals and the community. Support is provided by involving the local community and in partnership with community, voluntary and statutory organisations.

We offer a variety of programmes and supports through core funding from Tusla and HSE. Including older people’s services, family support/parenting programmes, work with youth, summer camps etc
Our mission is to build links between groups, families and individuals and to reach out and provide a range of services to encourage a community where everybody is valued and supported.

The National Forum of Family Resource Centres has welcomed the official launch of the Child and Family Support Agency (Tusla) on the 30th January 2013. See launch video:
