Please click here for information on a new Play Messaging Campaign which forms part of a Play and Leisure Project being taken forward by the Children and Young People’s Strategy Team within the Department of Education.
The Childcare Partnerships within the Health & Social Care Board and the Department of Education jointly hosted a Sure Start event on the 25th January 2018 in Belfast City Hall, to celebrate the Importance of the Early Years for children and families across Northern Ireland. The event brought together 180 professionals from a range of statutory, voluntary, community organisations and elected representatives to celebrate the work of Sure Start and to launch the findings of a Sure Start Parental Survey.
