Tusla, the Child and Family Agency provides funding and coordination supports to almost 60 organisations that deliver a range of services to victims of domestic, sexual and gender based violence (DSGBV) throughout the country.

In 2020, €25.3 million is being allocated to Tusla for DSGBV services.

To increase Tusla's funding for DSGBV services by 9% would therefore require an additional €2.3m, giving a full year cost of approximately €27.6m.
