The Family Resource centre offers a family support service delivered through the ethos of Community Development. The centre provides a focal point for the community and works towards building the capacity of local people to participate fully in society and to improve people’s quality of life by promoting local awareness, providing information, developing community initiatives and offering support. There is also a community-based charity shop on site supported and run by the community for the benefit of the local community.
Clara Resource Shop in a community shop selling both pre-loved items and locally produced crafts. They aim to make high quality affordable goods available locally. The space was developed by the board of the family resource centre and the shop is opened and operated 5 days a week by dedicated volunteers from the community. All proceeds from the sales are used to supplement the costs of youth and family activities run through the centre. The shop gives work experience and upskilling to many locals and prides itself on being a safe and comfortable community space for people to visit and shop.
