SureStart – Learnings from Lockdown: A Parent & Practitioner Perspective

 

Please view this 10 minute video the Childcare Partnership have pulled together across a number of Sure Start projects that highlights the fantastic work of Sure Start during the Covid Pandemic. It’s a very inspiring watch as it showcases the positive impact the service has had from a parent’s perspective but also the voice of practitioners in how they adapted to an ever changing environment.  In terms of showing “outcomes” it is a wonderful example of everyone’s efforts to make a real difference to families during such a difficult time. Special thanks goes to the parents from Dungannon, East Belfast and Down Sure Start for taking part and telling their stories.
