HVA What Works Sharing Knowledge Project 2022
Programme Replication, Scaling and Expansion Workshops and Report
As part of the What Works Sharing Knowledge Project 2022 and the development of the national model of Home Visiting as per the First Five, the Home Visiting Alliance (HVA) is engaged in a collaborative feasibility study on programme replication, scaling and expansion. Our aim is to ensure that the new national model for home visiting includes the infrastructure, processes and funding for the replication, scaling up and expansion of our home visiting programmes across Ireland so that every child, parent and family can avail of a home visiting programme that meets their needs.
CARN What Works Workshop Friday 28th October 10am -12noon
Led by the UNITES Project – Centre for Mental Health and Community Research, this workshop was an opportunity for Home Visitors and other key stakeholders to contribute to national policy. Central to the discussion will be how do we scale up evidence informed prevention and early intervention home visiting approaches with brainstorming encouraged on systemic challenges such as national oversight; programme and community readiness; referral pathways and integration with existing services, Home Visitor employment and learning requirements. Part of the reflection stage of Ireland’s home visiting action research cycle, this workshop is an opportunity for practice to shape policy and the national standardised model of home visiting in Ireland.
