Early Intervention Transformation Programme

Improving outcomes through early intervention.

We provide technical support to the Early Intervention Transformation Programme (EITP), which is part of the Delivering Social Change/the Atlantic Philanthropies Signature Programme. 

The aim of the EITP is to improve outcomes for children and young people across Northern Ireland through embedding early intervention approaches.

Collectively funded over a four-year period by the Departments for/of Education, Health, Employment and Learning, Communites and Justice, Northern Ireland Executive Office and the Atlantic Philanthropies, the EITP transforms mainstream services for children and families to deliver long-term improvement.

We are supporting the EITP to:

  • Transform mainstream 0–4 services to better equip parents to give their children the best start in life.

  • Help families with emerging needs access help quickly before problems become embedded.

  • Positively address the impact of adversity on children by intervening both earlier & more effectively to reduce the risk of poor outcomes later in life.
