The Deputy is aware that my Department officials and I have engaged with City of Dublin Education and Training Board (CDETB) in relation to issues concerning youth services.

My Department understands that the report referenced in the Deputy’s question is an internal organisational review conducted on foot of an agreement between CDETB and a staffing union relating to resources, grant management and communications.

CDETB has advised that they are considering the review and are engaging with relevant parties concerning the review content. There are discussions currently taking place regarding elements of this review and once this process has concluded CDETB will update my Department officials further as how they intend to proceed.
