Written answers (Question to Children)

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

In 2019, €25.3 million is being allocated to Domestic, Sexual and Gender Based Violence services, an increase of €1.5 million over 2018.

I have requested Tusla to respond directly to the Deputy on the matters raised with regard to funding for individual organisations within the specified time period.
