Written answers (Question to Public)

I appreciate the valuable work of the community and voluntary sector that provide services to children, young people and families across Ireland.  The issues raised in the Deputy’s question relate to the funding of such organisations. Under Section 56 of the Child and Family Agency Act 2013, the funding of these organisations is a matter for the Minister for Children, Equality, Disability, Integration and Youth.
