Tusla putting action plan in place to improve foster care services in Kerry

The child and family agency says it’s putting action plans in place to improve foster care services in Galway/Roscommon and Kerry.

It follows two reports which highlighted shortcomings in standards of care.

In Kerry, Tusla says a new garda vetting alert system has been put in place, and outstanding reviews of foster carers will be completed by the end of the year.

In Galway/Roscommon allegations of abuse will be dealt with in a timely fashion and all complaints and allegations are now tracked through bi-monthly meetings.
