<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;

This will enrich PEIN’s capacity to offer a wide-ranging and inclusive perspective on Prevention and
