1580. Deputy Maureen O'Sullivan asked the Minister for Employment Affairs and Social Protection the annual cost for the community employment drug rehab projects under the social inclusion framework, excluding all participant allowances but including supervisor and assistant supervisor grants, materials grants, training grants and so on.  [54531/17]

 

Minister for Employment Affairs and Social Protection (Deputy Regina Doherty): The focus of the Community Employment (CE) drug schemes is on rehabilitation, personal/social development and training for progression and re-integration into community and working life. The delivery of the dedicated drug rehabilitation programme framework requires an integrated approach involving multi-agency co-operation with the HSE; Local Education and Training Boards (LETBs); community; voluntary and Task Force engagement. This framework is essential for the achievement of successful outcomes of participants.

 

At the end of December 2016, the cost to the DEASP of the Community Employment Drug Rehabilitation projects, excluding all participant allowances but including Supervisor and Assistant Supervisor grants, materials grants and training grants was €5.785 m. The 2017 statistics are currently being finalised.

 

I trust this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
