ABC Sites


Three former PEIP sites (CDI Tallaght, Preparing for Life and youngballymun) transitioned into ABC Programme areas.  Proposals from other areas around the country were invited in April 2013. Following a competitive process, 10 additional areas were selected to participate in the programme. In order to qualify for the Programme, the ten new areas completed a ‘service design’ stage, during which they assessed local needs, developed a theory of change, and a high-level implementation plan for their area. The purpose of the service design phase was to ensure that the programmes and approaches proposed met community needs, fit with the objectives of the programme, and had a strong evidence base. It also provided time and space for planning and developing relationships among key stakeholders in the area. During 2014 and early 2015, all new areas successfully completed the service design phase.
