Finn Valley Family Resource Centre invites you to come and say hello

Finn Valley Family Resource Centre

is a newly established FRC based in Stranorlar. We intend to provide a broad range of community based family supports and community development services. We are a company limited by guarantee and a charity with a board of directors who are responsible for the governance around our service delivery. We are part of the National Network of Family Resource centres and Funded by Túsla, The National Child and Family Agency.

Our mission is to ‘provide families and individuals with a range of activities that will support and nurture family and community life’

As a Family resource centre, we are committed to the principles of community development and social justice. In this our aim is to provide an open, accessible space to support families and to support in building the capacity and leadership of the local community. We are dependent on the community’s input to develop and enhance our service delivery.

We have an open evening on Tuesday 11th December 6-8pm. Why not come along and see what is on offer.
