Portlaoise Family Resource Centre (FRC) is one of 108 Family Resource Centres in the country. Family Resource Centres are not-for-profit organisations managed by voluntary management committees and funded by Tusla Child and Family Agency. Every FRC was established to provide a range of supports that help families meet the day-to-day challenges of everyday life.
We work to implement a 3 year workplan which is approved by the Department prior to granting our annual funding. This workplan is designed based on the needs of the community. We gather this information through a series of consultations, workshops, focus groups and door-to-door surveys. The information we get from people determines the actions we include in our plan.
Portlaoise FRC is the only Family Resource Centre in County Laois.
