Our Impact..


21 Years

in existence

.. ago, the 'Happy Morning Women's Group' was started. This grew into the LHD Centre (Lakeside, Highfield and Dara Park) which in 2003 became a part of the National Family Resource Centre Programme.


Newbridge Family Resource Centre provides quality affordable services and programmes to the community of Newbridge through family support, community development, childcare services and the provision of information and support.


People in our community

NFRC's hinterland has a growing, diverse population.



children in our community

A higher than the national avergae proportion of the population are younger than 18, meaning greater demands for services for this group.


Our supporters..


Newbridge Family Resource Centre is funded by Tusla - Child and Family Agency and Pobal, and its work is also supported by Kildare County Council, Kildare and Wicklow Education and Training Board.

A number of other agencies also provide funding for projects run by the centre.
