Children and young people

Our work in this field includes several studies examining the economic impact of early intervention and investment in children and young people’s services. We have also conducted area-based evaluations in disadvantaged communities and studies of specific groups, such as children in the care system or homeless young people. We are currently working with Youth Work Ireland to evaluate the impact of their integrated model of service delivery.
