Public Accounts Committee

Financial Statements 2022 - Tusla-Child and Family Agency

9:30 am

Ms Kate Duggan:

Going back to something Deputy Murphy recognised, it is also important to say that some of the funding we give out for parenting supports and FRCs is given in the knowledge that those centres will consider where the greatest need is in that local area. While the funding is allocated for general family supports, those centres may decide to direct it to parents' counselling, an after-school activity for children or a response to a particular cohort. Some funding goes out as overall funding for a region, which the local organisation then allocates. However, I will take away the Deputy's question and give her a breakdown.
