I am pleased to inform you that Tusla’s review is completed and ready for publication. I plan to submit a Memorandum for the Information of the Government on the matter early in the New Year at which time Tusla will publish the Review. I have been in contact with the Minister for Justice and the Minister for Housing in this regard.

In advance of publication, Tusla is to arrange a suitable briefing of all the NGO stakeholders funded by Tusla to deliver services to victims of domestic, sexual and gender based violence (DSGBV). I understand that Tusla's CEO will also arrange briefing for the members of the Oireachtas Committee on Children, Equality, Disability, Integration and Youth.

I am committed to ensuring that the findings of the Review will inform the approach to addressing the shortage in refuge provision and will also inform the strategic actions under the forthcoming Third National Strategy on DSGBV.
