Early Intervention Transformation Call


The Health & Social Care Research & Development Division of the Public Health Agency (HSC R&D Division) invites applications for commissioned research on the current outcomes of the implementation of the Early Intervention Transformation Programmes (EITP) under Work Streams 1, 2 & 3.

Applications are invited from research teams that demonstrate appropriate experience and expertise. Applications which include collaborations from other jurisdictions, including an all-island component, are welcome; however, the Chief Investigator must be based in Northern Ireland.


Applications are expected to include the following –

  1. Inform the process of continuous improvement of EITP work streams.
  2. Inform the development of any subsequent EITP interventions.
  3. Inform future strategy for EITP for children and young people and their families.
  4. Allow generalisable application in contexts beyond the Northern Ireland setting.

The total funding available for this call is £300,000, (over 3 years) with a total of £100,000 allocated to each Work Stream. One project will be selected from each Work Stream for the award. The closing date for applications is 1.00pm on Wednesday 11 November 2015. Potential applicants are advised to contact HSC R&D Division to discuss their application and obtain further contact details for the Work Stream Leads and Change Managers.
