Tusla, the Child and Family Agency provides annual financial support to a large number of community and voluntary organisations, which provide supports to vulnerable children and families, including the organisation referred to by the Deputy.

I have requested Tusla to respond directly to the Deputy regarding funding provided to the organisation in question in the years 2017, 2018 and 2019, and waiting times for a child to be seen in the respective years.
