Written answers (Question to Children)

As highlighted to the Deputy in response to her previous question (Ref PQ 21848/19), I secured an additional €1.5m in funding for domestic, sexual and gender-based violence services in 2019 and have announced how this additional funding is to be used.

I have asked Tusla, the Child and Family Agency to respond directly to the Deputy regarding additional funding for the named organisation this year.
