The pilot project was conducted in three community care areas of the Eastern Health Board (EHB), now the East Region Health Authority (ERHA), over the period May 1999 to June 2000 The project was concerned with introducing and operating Family Group Conferences (FGCs), as originally developed and used in New Zealand and now in more widespread use, in an Irish legal, organisational and professional context. The report describes the FGC process and the pilot project in depth. It contains details of the Conferences held as part of the Pilot Project as well as the views of the multiple participants involved.
