Department of Children and Youth Affairs
Child and Family Agency Data
368. To ask the Minister for Children and Youth Affairs the number of children deemed to be at risk; the extent to which this number has fluctuated on the basis of satisfactory or other outcomes; and if she will make a statement on the matter. [30453/19]
This question relates to an operational matter for Tusla, the Child and Family Agency. I have therefore referred the matter to Tusla, and asked that a direct response be provided to the Deputy.
I can inform the Deputy that data on the number of open cases, which are cases which have been assessed as requiring a social work intervention, is reported monthly, and published in the National Performance and Activity Dashboard on the Tusla website.
