History of Bagenalstown Family Resource Centre
Bagenalstown Family Resource Centre was set up in November 2001. We are funded by the Department of Social & Family Affairs under the FSA.
Bagenalstown Family Resource Centre is committed to the principles of community development, which promote positive change in the community. We are currently challenging the causes of disadvantage/poverty. Through our programmes we offer new opportunities for those lacking choice, power and resources. We aim to involve local people in making the changes that they identify to be important and which encourage them to build new knowledge and experience.
Bagenalstown Family Resource Centre has an open door policy; and we are committed to supporting individuals and groups and services that facilitate and support people to engage in ways that respects their own experiences and reflects their owns hopes and aspirations.

In September 2008, the centre purchased their community bus.
The bus enables the centre to provide safe transportation of children who are attending our after school program. The bus collects children from the three National Schools within the area, and brings them to our premises in Moneybeg, Royal Oak Road.
The bus also provides collection for our Community Playschool, for parents who are unable to walk to the playschool because of health related problems.
With the bus we can offer our family day trips, which were not in a position to do before because of the expense of bus hire.
We also offer a transport for elderly within the community to attend St. Lazarians Day Care Centre. Our bus is fully wheelchair assessable.
