In this report, a characterisation is provided on the central elements/principles that are contained within the Meitheal and the Child and Family Support Networks and Signs of Safety practice models. Both represent two distinctive national practice models within Tusla’s service delivery system of Family Support and Child Protection. In the case of Meitheal, this model functions as part of Tusla’s Programme for Prevention, Partnership and Family Support. While the Signs of Safety practice model is operating within the confines of Tusla’s Child Protection and Welfare Strategy. Therefore, our primary emphasis in this context is to highlight areas: of alignment/overlap; where there are distinctions; and how both practice models complement each other.
