The Deputy will be aware the Irish Youth Justice Service is comprised of co-located staff of my Department and the Department of Children and Youth Affairs. My Department currently funds some 106 local Garda Youth Diversion Projects, a number of measures of training and support for those projects, a mentoring initiative and a number of other initiatives including two pilot projects working with harder-to-engage young people. The Table below sets out the position in relation to the funding of all such community-based projects and their supports as sought by the Deputy.
