Balgaddy Child and Family Centre has sought to be included within the Family Resource Centre Programme operated by the Child and Family Agency. The Programme is closed at present to new applications.

The Centre has been in receipt of philanthropic funding and this funding arrangement is due to cease from 2015 onwards.

I understand that discussions have been held between the Agency and the Centre, most recently last month. I am currently awaiting the outcome of these discussions.
