The primary purpose of the FRC programme is to combat disadvantage, and to strengthen and empower individuals, families, children and communities. A central feature of the FRC programme is the involvement of local people in identifying needs and addressing the issues they face. FRCs provide a range of universal and targeted services and development opportunities that address the needs of families and individuals.

Each FRC is led by a Voluntary Board of Directors which aims to identify and address the specific needs of their local community. The FRC programme is core-funded by Tusla – the Child and Family Agency.
