Research Advisory Group
The Research Advisory Group (RAG) is representative of a wide range of stakeholders with an interest in promoting and supporting child care and related research including service users, academic institutions, regulatory bodies, professional associations and research institutions.
The RAG provides independent expert advice to Tusla on identifying and prioritising research topics. Its input helps to enhance the quality of both the research process and the research findings through eliciting a broad spectrum of experiences and views.
RAG members are experts in their area and are well placed to recognise emerging research ideas and opportunities across all of the Tusla remit and to provide advice regarding the research implications of a range of strategic child care and policy issues.
