Italy’s Programme of Intervention to Prevent Institutionalisation (P.I.P.P.I.) is a blend of evidence-based research and action to prevent children being taken into care. P.I.P.P.I. focuses on families that face multiple, complex difficulties.

An online system allows the workings of the plan to be monitored modified, if need be.
