Written answers (Question to Children)

The practice referred to by the Deputy is an innovative strengths-based, safety-organised approach to child protection casework. It is a child protection methodology, which has at its core the involvement of the child in any assessment and decision making process.

As any license agreement and associated budget are operational matters for Tusla, I have requested Tusla to respond to the Deputy directly.
