Main Services Provided

CHERISH Sure Start is built around the wants and needs of local people. The aim is to improve the well-being and life opportunities of young children aged under 4 through better health, childcare, play and educational programmes, from the moment they are born.

At present, the CHERISH Sure Start Initiative covers a catchment area within a three mile radius of Irvinestown.

Irvinestown was chosen due to the rural isolation experienced by its Community. Sure Start will address this issue by bringing services and facilities into the area.

The Cherish Sure Start Initiative partnership comprises of parents and carers together with voluntary and statutory organisations. In this way, the best results can be achieved. As the old saying goes 'Many hands make light work!' The organisations involved in the Sure Start programme are:

· Irvinestown Community partnership - Lead organisation
· The ARC Healthy Living Centre
· Irvinestown Trustee Enterprise Centre
· Western Health and Social Services Board
· Home-Start Lakeland
· Lifestart Enniskillen
