Dalriada Rural Sure Start

Come with us for a Sure Start


My name is Sharon Kirk and I am the Co-ordinator for Dalriada Rural Sure Start. Our Project is Government funded and works with parents of children aged 0-4 years in the areas of Bushmills, Mosside, Ballycastle, Armoy and Ballymoney.

We offer a very wide variety of programmes from Baby Massage & Yoga to Cook It to Antenatal Yoga, which are all extremely popular with our families. Our services are free and available to all expectant parents and families who live within our catchment area.

We always like to hear from our families so feel free to call in to any of our 3 offices for a chat and to find our which programmes are running. We aim to keep our events page as up to date as possible so please check it regularly to find out what exciting programmes are on offer at a location close to you.
