Written answers (Question to Children)

I must advise the Deputy that Tusla, the Child and Family Agency collates data for the purposes of reporting by Tusla administrative area, rather than by county.

The table below lays out the number of children in residential special care, who have an allocated social worker, by Tusla administrative area.
