Comparing areas of commonality and distinction between the national practice models of Meitheal and Signs of Safety
Malone, Patrick; Canavan, John; Devaney, Carmel; McGregor, Caroline
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.
