Gold Sure Start

Welcome to Our Website!

Welcome Message

Surestart is a government funded initiative specifically for families with children under 4 who live in the top 25% disadvantaged wards in Northern Ireland.


Research has shown that when children who have access to early intervention and positive play experiences enjoy more positive outcomes in adulthood. 


The Aims of Surestart are to:-

Improve the ability to learn by encouraging stimulating play, improving language and communication skills and by the early identification and support of children with additional needs.

Improve health by supporting parents in caring for children and promoting children's health and development.

Improve social development by supporting the early relationships between parents and children, enhancing positive parenting skills and early intervention and support of children with emotional, learning or behavioural needs.


Every parent wants the best for their children.

Help us to help you give your child the very best start in life – a Surestart!
