Recently an interagency networking coffee morning was hosted by An Garda Síochána and led by Insp Tony Sugrue at the “Just Us” - Garda Project building in Rahoonane, Tralee, Co. Kerry. Margaret Finch who is an ITT lecturer gave a presentation on the benefits of developing an interagency approach and this was reiterated by Insp Sugrue who has firsthand experience of this while working in other areas of An Garda Síochána in the Kerry Division. Those organisations that attended were HSE, TUSLA, Adapt Women’s Refuge, Kerry Rape & Sexual Abuse Centre, KDYS, JIGSAW, Enable Ireland, Kerry Educate Together, Shanakill Family Resource Centre, Novas, Rahoonane Community Centre, Kerry County Council and Tralee Community Drugs Initiative. There were also representatives from all schools in the Tralee area. The aim of the coffee morning was to create an interagency committee of representatives from each organisation operating on a day to day basis with a view to identifying ongoing issues affecting the local Community and developing strategies to deal with them effectively in a coordinated manner.
