Written answers (Question to Children)

Tusla, the Child and Family Agency, administers the Family Resource Centre (FRC) Programme.

In Budget 2019, I secured an increase of €1.5 million for the FRC Programme. This brings the overall financial allocation for the Programme in 2019 to €18 million.

It would cost €1.8 million if the budget for FRCs increased by 10%.
