The LSSC has recently been involved with the new Commissioning process of TUSLA, Child & Family Agency and the LSSC General Manager, Mr Brian Ryan attended an open forum for agencies in the Mid West to discuss the TUSLA’s Commissioning strategy for the region. Commissioning is the process of deciding how to better use the total resources available for children and families in order to improve outcomes in the most efficient, effective, and equitable way.
The LSSC recognises that Commissioning will change the way in which services have traditionally been grant funded with a move to a more robust needs assessment process. This will result in an improved resource allocation arrangement.
As a key partner in its work, the LSSC will support TUSLA’s Commissioning as a way to better facilitate and shape local services in terms of quality and value for money.
