The Blue Skies (ABC) consortium was brought together by Archways in 2013 and has made a successful application to the Area Based Initiative, a government funded programme designed to address area based disadvantage and promote children’s health and well being. The programme will be funded for a three year period and consists of three strands aimed at improving outcomes for children in the catchment area of North and South West Clondalkin. The consortium consists of key local and national stakeholders in the community, statutory, and voluntary sector.
The programme delivers a comprehensive service to all children and families in North and South West Clondalkin from pre-birth to age 7. The programme has 2 strands – A pre-birth to 2 programme, and a 3-7 year old programme including a pre-school strand and a transition to school/in school strand.
