Department of Children and Youth Affairs
Child and Family Agency Funding
241. To ask the Minister for Children and Youth Affairs the amount of funding provided by Tusla to organisations providing counselling and psychotherapy supports to children and families in County Wexford in each of the years 2014 to 2018 and to date in 2019, by each organisation. [6129/19]
Under the Child and Family Agency Act, 2013, Tusla, the Child and Family Agency is required to support and promote the development, welfare and protection of children. Tusla provides funding to a range of organisations which provide counselling, psychotherapy and support services to vulnerable children and families.
As the Deputy's question refers to an operational matter for Tusla, I have requested Tusla to respond directly to the Deputy.
