Our role in supporting the Implementation Network

In 2011 CES established the Implementation Network of Ireland and Northern Ireland, to share experience of implementation and to build the capacity of people working in services in implementation. The Network brings together senior policy-makers, service-providers, managers, practitioners and researchers to promote learning about implementation.
