Working for children and families : exploring good practice


This document provides a snapshot of some of the models and approaches currently being implemented in child and family services throughout Ireland. Each Health Board was asked to nominate up to three examples of service provision that they feel represents good practice. The 26 models nominated are profiled in this document in order to enable policy makers and practitioners to see good work happening throughout the country and learn from the experiences of others. A set of good practice principles, as identified through empirical research and literature, is presented at the outset. Whilst the services profiled were not evaluated as part of this project, this set of principles can be used as a guide to assist in the analysis and understanding of the service profiles.
