Written answers (Question to Children)

Tusla, the Child and Family Agency is responsible for the administration of the Family Resource Centre (FRC) Programme. As the allocation of funds within the FRC Programme is an operational matter for Tusla, I have requested Tusla to respond to the Deputy directly.

I recognise and value the very positive impact of the work of the Family Resource Centres in supporting families and local communities, particularly in areas of disadvantage.
