On 8 December we participated in a webinar by the Home Visiting Alliance in Ireland, launched in 2020 to support and promote home visiting as a key service for very young children. The Home Visiting Alliance is a collaboration of five Irish evidence-based early childhood home visiting programmes.
We joined experts from Ireland and the USA to highlight the role of evidence-based home visiting services in supporting early childhood development, tackling child poverty and social exclusion and reaching families, caregivers and young children facing particular disadvantage and vulnerability.
