1089. To ask the Minister for Children and Youth Affairs the number of adults and children that accessed Tusla funded domestic violence refuge accommodation to date in 2020; the average length of time families spent in such accommodation; and the number of beds available on any given night in 2020.

Tusla, the Child and Family Agency provides funding and coordination supports to some 59 organisations that deliver a range of services for victims of domestic, sexual and gender based violence throughout the country.

With regard to statistics relating to the use of Tusla-funded emergency domestic violence accommodation, Tusla has advised that data is collected retrospectively. The Department's understanding is that data for 2020 is not yet available. 

I have requested Tusla to respond directly to the Deputy with regard to any further information required on this matter.
