Cassidy, A., Rodriguez, L. and Devaney, C. (2018) A Retrospective Study of the Meitheal Model. Galway: UNESCO Child and Family Research Centre, National University of Ireland, Galway.
This report presents findings on a retrospective study of the experiences of parents1 and Lead Practitioners who participated in Meitheals initiated prior to 2017. This is complementary to the Meitheal Process and Outcomes study, which is part of the overall evaluation of the Meitheal and Child and Family Support Networks (CFSNs) model. A qualitative approach was used to gather the data for this research study. The findings focus on participants’ views on taking part in the process and its perceived role in addressing children’s, young people’s2, and families’ unmet needs, with some discussion about whether the changes have been sustained.
