Newbridge Family Resource Centre welcomes callers for information, advice or simply a cup of tea and a chat. The Centre serves the local community of Lakeside, Dara Park and Highfield as well as the greater Newbridge area.
The service grew out of the 'Happy Morning Women's Group' which was established and developed by local women in September 1996. The 'LHD' Centre (Lakeside, Highfield and Dara Park) was housed in a three bedroomed house in Dara Park, until the opening of the Resource Centre. In 2003 the LHD group were successful in becoming a part of the National Family Resource Centre Programme. This funding allowed us to provide services for the wider Newbridge community.
Newbridge Family Resource Centre has operated within the purpose built building in Dara Park since April 2004.
The Centre is funded by Tulsa - Child & Family Agency and Pobal, and its work is supported by Kildare County Council, kwetb, SOLAS and other agencies.
