Catherine Connolly TD welcomes Time 4 Us agreement

The confirmation from Minster Zappone that the Time 4 Us service is to continue to operate after the 31 March has been welcomed by Catherine Connolly TD, who campaigned with a number of Galway politicians, users of the service and members of the legal profession to keep the service operating.

The Minister announced last week that the family service will continue after the end of March.

Connolly contacted the Directors of Time 4 Us to clarify why they felt obliged to announce the closure of the service, when the issue was brought to her attention.

The Board of Time4Us confirmed that the core difficulties were the lack of appropriate governance structures along with appropriate skill mix on the Board.

Having clarified that it was a matter of the absence of appropriate governance structures, Deputy Connolly then raised the matter in the Dáil.

However, while welcoming the confirmation that the service is to continue to operate, Deputy Connolly says that she  is still seeking clarification on a few matters.

They include: the nature and details of the transition phase, including confirmation that Time 4 Us will continue to operate in the Shantalla location pending the move to Doughiska; when the service moves, that it will provide the same service albeit under a different governance structure; and clarification in relation to the staff currently employed at the Shantalla location and whether they will be transferred to Doughiska.
