If you have arrived in Northern Ireland from Ukraine, under either the Family Scheme or Homes for Ukraine Scheme, you should go to an assistance centre. These centres are in Ballymena, Belfast, Craigavon and Newry.
As part of the wider transformation of Health and Social Care (HSC) services in Northern Ireland, the Health and Social Care Board (HSCB) will close on 31 March 2022 and responsibility for its functions will transfer to the Department of Health.
As part of this transformation, it has been decided to merge the Childcare Partnerships Website with www.familysupportni.gov.uk.
From Monday 7 March, the Department of Health’s COVID-19 Childcare Guidance will be stood down. From this date you will therefore no longer be required to demonstrate adherence to the Guidance for the purpose of inspections.
The Childcare Partnerships/Health and Social Care Board (HSCB) in collaboration with the Northern Ireland Social Care Council (NISCC), have developed a FREE Web-based Interactive Digital Learning Course COVID-19 Infection Prevention and Control Training for Childcare Settings.
