About Us

The Family Resource Centre was established to combat disadvantage and our goal is to have ‘an inclusive, well informed, active and participating community, where the family unit is supported and safe and secure’ at the core of its work at all times. Since our foundation in 1998 we have established the centre as the area’s natural focal point by providing services and family support. In more recent years we have focused on additional family friendly activities while still providing a range of programmes and services, including community education, community garden, men’s shed and group supports.

These services stimulate empowerment, encourage participation, are inclusive, give children, families and individuals equal opportunities, are anti-discriminatory and promote partnership.
We also deliver specific projects for children and young people, developing personal capacity, improving health and wellbeing and providing educational opportunities. We work in partnership with local agencies to provide these supports.
In addition to this, the centre provides information, advice and supports to meet the needs of individuals and groups. We also offer faxing,typing and copying service, internet access, library, agency outreach, assist with job applications and CV writing, room rental and tourist information.

We provide a range of courses, job clubs, workshops and events throughout the year.The centre is managed by a Voluntary Board of Management elected from various community groups at the AGM held each year at the end of February.
Meitheal Mhíobhaigh CRT/Mevagh Family Resource Centre is a company limited by guarantee.

Since our establishment in 1997 the centre has grown substantially, and we are continually sourcing new programmes, supports, and resources for the community, despite having cuts to our funding.
