Short overview/summary:

Hosted by Inishowen Development Partnership (IDP), the IFAN model has developed over the past 15 years and now demonstrates a high level of interagency working and meaningful collaboration. It has proved to be an excellent model of focusing on an outcomes approach for the empowerment of families and their health and well-being.   

IFAN provides a joined up collaborative approach needed to support families in all spheres of their lives. Families are at the centre of this work, and IFAN follows a rights-based approach. It aims “To create an environment for a joined up and integrated approach to supporting parents, carers, children and young people living in Inishowen.”
