The Care Leavers Network is describing as "tokenism" Tusla's response to a damning report of foster care in the Midlands.
The Health Information and Quality Authority yesterday published a report saying that, of the 26 standards assessed, none were met.
The watchdog says that in 'high-priority' cases, safeguarding visits had not taken place, and where they had, they were not always of a quality to provide assurances around potential or known risks.
In response, Tusla, the Child and Family agency says it recognises the shortcomings highlighted in the report.
It says it has identified a range of measures to improve care experiences for children and carers
Newbridge man, Shane Griffin, is spokesperson for the Care Leavers Network.
Speaking to Kildare Today, he says it is now time for an the Minister for Children to "look" at the "top level" of Tusla.
