Let us introduce ourselves

The Child and Family Agency was established on the 1st January 2014 and is now the dedicated State agency responsible for improving wellbeing and outcomes for children. It represents the most comprehensive reform of child protection, early intervention and family support services ever undertaken in Ireland. It is an ambitious move which brings together over 4,000 staff and an operational budget of over €750m.

WHAT WE DO

Our new website, ChangingFutures.ie, is now available. A group of young people with experience of Tusla services set out to help other young people understand the work we do - they created everything from the logo, to the design and content.
