Who<strong><em>We Are</em></strong>

The Prevention and Early Intervention Network (PEIN) was formed in 2010, to bring together evidence-based practice, advocacy and research organisations, in order to:

  • Share, develop and disseminate learning;
  • Support the work of member organisations;
  • Shape policy and practice, nationally, internationally and locally by:
    • Networking and building relationships;
    • Creating learning opportunities:
    • Influencing policy, practice and public discourse.

PEIN is now inviting membership from a wide range of individuals and organisations who are implementing programmes, activities or approaches in child and family services, based on a prevention or early intervention approach. This will enrich PEIN’s capacity to offer a wide-ranging and inclusive perspective on Prevention and

Early Intervention in the Irish context to potential partners, extend the learning and offer all members opportunities for engagement with a broad range of stakeholders.

Our <strong><em>Vision</em></strong>


Embedding Prevention and Early Intervention into Policy and Practice

The role of evidence-based / informed prevention and early intervention in working
for better outcomes for children and young people is understood nationally and locally

The central importance of the rights of the child are recognised and upheld, in government policy, agency practice and amongst the public at large

Funding stream for evidence-based / informed prevention and early intervention
are central to the implementation of government policy
