Malone, P. and Canavan, J. (2018) Systems Change: Final Evaluation Report on Tusla’s Prevention, Partnership and Family Support Programme. UNESCO Child and Family Research Centre, National University of Ireland Galway.
In 2015 the Atlantic Philanthropies, Ireland, funded a major programme of investment in parenting, prevention, and family support services which formed part of the overall early development of Tusla, the newly established independent child and family agency. The project is formally referred to as the Development and Mainstreaming Programme (DMP) for Prevention, Partnership and Family Support (hereafter the PPFS Programme). It attracted an investment of over €8 million to Tusla and an additional €2.1 million to the UNESCO Child and Family Research Centre. The central focus of the programme was to strengthen and develop Tusla’s prevention, early intervention, and family support services. In this report, we examine the overall implementation, processes, and outcomes of the PPFS Programme over its lifetime.
