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