Written answers (Question to Children)

Tusla, the Child and Family Agency commissioned this report. It is an analysis to identify needs for the planning and delivery of DSGBV services in the Galway area.

Tusla has advised me that regional needs analysis reports will be published on the domestic, sexual and gender-based violence section of its website shortly. This section is under construction at present. It is envisaged that the reports will be made available early in Quarter 1, 2020.

Tusla has informed me that a number of recommendations in the report, to which the Deputy refers, have been actioned to enhance and support the delivery of domestic, sexual and gender based violence services in Galway.
