Funding of national voluntary organizations

Asked about the funding of national voluntary organizations by his department, the Minister for Community, Rural and Gaeltacht Affairs Pat Carey told Brian O’Shea (Lab, Waterford) that contracts with such organizations were due to expire on 31st December 2010. Officials of his department were currently carrying out a review to evaluate the scheme and he hoped that the process would be completed by the autumn. All organizations involved in the scheme, including the one that he had enquired about (the Dyslexia Association) were being consulted as part of the review process (Dail Eireann, Debates, 1st June 2010, 272).
