2013 saw CAD survive another year despite the fallout of earlier significant cuts in statutory funding. As stated in previous reports, CAD the HSE and The South Inner City Local Drugs Task Force cut CAD’s funding by 48% (€120,000) in a short period of four years. A rescue plan saw us introducing ‘short time’ to all three members of staff. A fourth member of staff who had found alternative work was not replaced. Throughout the year, staff worked many hours without pay and so important service provision outlined in this report continued on despite considerable pressure experienced by staff and directors alike.
