Policy Briefings

Childhood Development Initiative has a remit to influence policy and practice; to change “business as usual” so that we more effectively meet the needs of children and families. To support this aim, CDI has published several ‘Policy Briefs’ alongside each of its Programme Evaluation Reports to extract key policy recommendations. These findings have been communicated to relevant Ministers, Department Officials, Politicians, Stakeholder Organisations and the Community in Tallaght.
