Blue Skies Initiative

Who We Are & What We Do

The Blue Skies Initiative is one of 13 Area Based Childhood programmes (ABC) based in Clondalkin  and now Adamstown. The ABC Programme is an innovative prevention and early intervention initiative consisting of committed funding for an area-based approach to helping to improve outcomes for children. The initiative is managed locally by the Consortium which is made up of members from several statutory and community organisations in the area and is led by Archways. The Blue Skies Initiative is designed to improve the overall wellbeing for children and families in the area.

The focus of the work under the ABC Programme covers in the main:

  • Child Health & Development
  • Childrens Learning
  • Parenting
  • Integrated Service Delivery

Areas are implementing a range of programmes and services in a variety of settings including schools, early years settings, and in the home. Emphasis is being placed on enhancing interagency collaboration to ensure services being delivered are timely, accessible, and have the potential to become mainstreamed.
