About this project
Raphoe Family Resource Centre CLG was established in 1995. It was originally known as the Raphoe Youth and Community Project, rooted in the local authority housing estate of Meadowhill. In 2001, the project was well developed, and the voluntary committee decided to explore mechanisms for sustainability. The project was accepted into the Family and Community Services Resource Centre Programme and received its first 3-year contract in early 2002.
Raphoe Family Resource Centre is one of 121 Family Resource Centres operating nationally under the FRC programme. The Family Resource Centre (FRC) programme is Ireland’s largest National Family and Community Bases Support Programmes, core funded by Tusla (the Child and Family Agency). We are a member of the North West Region of Family Resource Centres and the National Forum of Family Resource Centres. All our team is fully vetted.
The FRC has grown and evolved throughout the years, continuing to respond to the needs of families and the wider community. The work of the FRC is informed and aligned to the Five National Outcomes outlined in Better Outcomes, Brighter Futures: The National Policy Framework for Children and Young People.
We work from a community development approach dedicated to meeting the needs of the community. The centre provides a wide range of universal and targeted services to individuals, families, and the wider Raphoe community to bring about more positive outcomes for children, families, and the wider community.
