About Us

Surestart is a government funded initiative specifically for families with children under four; living in sunnylands, Northlands, Clipperstown, Lovelane and Killycrot wards. That means the government gives us the money and the services are completely free for families. Barnardos are the lead body for Horizon SureStart. We also deliver services in Larne’s Antiville, Ballyloran and Craigyhill areas through Action for children.

We deliver services in Sunnylands primary school and we also rent out rooms in the new YMCA building in Carrickfergus town centre for the connivence of families living in the Killycrot ward.

The overall aim of Surestart is “to improve the wellbeing and life opportunities of young children under 4, through better health, early learning and play opportunities” so that “children can flourish when they enter school”.
