Tusla - Ireland's Child & Family Agency

Prevention, Partnership and Family Support Programme

The best way to improve outcomes for children is to intervene at an early stage to resolve problems and prevent harm.  The Prevention, Partnership and Family Support (PPFS) Programme is a comprehensive programme of early intervention and preventative work which has been undertaken by Tusla.

The aim of the programme is to prevent risks to children and young people arising or escalating through building sustainable intellectual capacity and manpower within Tusla and partner organisations to perform early intervention work. 

Contact details of the PPFS team nationally are available here.

The Programme is divided into three main work streams



Supporting the participation of children and young people in decisions that affect them.



Supporting parents in developing their parenting skills.


Implementing an area-based approach to identifying
and addressing needs earlier and in a coordinated manner
