Focus group with two mothers who participated in the early intervention programme Preparing for Life. This focus groups was conducted in 2009 as part of the process evaluation of the Preparing for Life (PFL) programme which was delivered by the community organisation Northside Partnership in Dublin from 2008. The process evaluation is part of a larger evaluation of PFL, which was conducted by researchers at the UCD Geary Institute between 2008 and 2015, and led by Dr Orla Doyle.
This transcript is from a focus group with mothers who were allocated into the low treatment group by a randomisation process. The low treatment group received a limited amount of PFL supports including access to an Information Officer (IO) in their community. In this focus group interviewees discuss their interactions with the IO and their satisfaction with this contact, expectations before participating, classes that are available to them and their impact, and time limitations on attending these classes.
