On the 18th December, Dr James Reilly TD, Minister for Children and Youth Affairs and Ms Norah Gibbons, Chairperson, Tusla – Child and Family Agency launched a suite of resources for young people in care. These resources were written by TACTIC (Teenagers and Children Talking in Care), a consultative group of children and young people who are themselves in care.

The children and young people decided to develop a suite of materials for children and young people when they are first going into care, aimed at providing reassurance and at highlighting how they can have their voices heard in their own care situations.
