The National Children's Resource Centre was Officially opened on the 15 February 1993 by the Minister for Health Mr Brendan Howlin in response to the need for a centralised information gathering and dissemination agency on child related issues. The National Children's Resource Centre also incorporates a training service primarily aimed at those working with children and advisory services on day care and adoption related issues. The general aim of the National Children's Resource Centre is to provide information and training relevant to the welfare of children (0- 18) in response to current issues and likely future developments in childcare in Ireland. The National Children's Resource Centre is run by Barnardo's with the help of an advisory panel consisting of representatives from the statutory, voluntary and academic sectors within and outside Dublin. The National Children's Resource Centre liaises with and offers information on a wide range of voluntary and statutory groups, who have an interest in children.
