The Family Resource Centre in Athlone is set to benefit from a Government cash injection, according to local minister, Denis Naughten
The Monsignor McCarthy Family Resource Centre in Athlone will receive €17,055, which will allow for small works to go ahead before the end of the year.
Minister Naughten said: “The grants mark the start of a 12-month period that will see an extra €5 million pumped into Family Resource Centres across the country by my Independent Cabinet colleague, the Minister for Children Katherine Zappone.
“Family Resource Centres are at the very heart of community life and provide invaluable services to families, children and older people in our local areas. They deserve government support and recognition.”
