Prevention, Partnership and Family Support
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, with the support of the UNESCO Child and Family Research Centre, NUI Galway
PPFS Programme will take place over three and a half years (2015 – 2018) and will embed early intervention and prevention within the Agency. 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. The work is being made possible as a result of a once-off non-discretionary grant of €8.3 million from Atlantic Philanthropies.

The Programme is divided into five main work streams
