Decision due on Listowel Family Resource Centre

A decision is due next month on the future of Listowel Family Resource Centre which caters for over 100 families. The Centre’s Project Co-ordinator says it’s facing closure if the Department of Justice cuts staff funding which will leave the centre with a financial deficit of 96 thousand euro.The group has launched a fundraising campaign with the hope of raising 100 thousand euro to build a new purpose-built childcare facility on the John B Keane Road. Jackie Landers says they hope a second appeal against the cut in staff funding will be successful.
