Abstract

The purpose of the audit of service provision for County Meath is to answer the questions “who does what, where, and for whom? The audit has been compiled from data gathered largely through a questionnaire distributed to over 170 agencies at national, regional, county and local level, of which 72 responded. The outputs include a database of service providers comprising a listing of 72 organisations covering a wide range of services. While it has not been possible to include all agencies responsible for the provision of services in the county, the database includes a wide range of organisations (see Table 1 & Appendix 1), from state agencies to local information centres that have a role in providing services to the citizens of Co. Meath. In addition a small number of state agencies operating at national level have been included in a second database. While these organisations responded to the questionnaire they have no operational or locational presence specific to the county. This group has been excluded from the following analysis of service providers.
