Organisation background

Doras Bui is a community resource centre for lone parent families located on the north-east side of Dublin City, Ireland. Doras Bui, a parent’s alone resource centre, was founded in 1986 as part of the EU Second Programme to Combat Poverty, formerly known as P.A.R.C. (Parents Alone Resource Centre). Since 1990, all our activities are supported and funded through a combination of grants from Government Departments and statutory bodies, charitable foundations, and donations from individuals.

We were the first locally based resource centre for lone parents and their children in Ireland and we have grown from a modest two roomed maisonette provided by Dublin City Council to a purpose - built Centre which was opened in 1992 by the then President of Ireland, Mary Robinson who became our patron in 2002. In 1998, the organisation was extended with the construction of a full time Early Years’ service which provides full time childcare places.


Doras Bui is a community development resource centre and Early Years’ Service that provides high quality supports and programmes to one parent families living in the North-East Dublin area. We are committed to the delivery of an excellent early years’ service in a safe and inclusive environment where children and families are facilitated to reach their full potential. We aim to support lone parents to extend their life choices overcome discrimination and isolation and become socially and economically independent.
