Better Start Bradford

What does it do?

Better Start Bradford works with families to give children the best possible start in life in Bowling and Barkerend, Bradford Moor and Little Horton through a range of over 15 innovative projects to support them through pregnancy and the earliest years of their children’s lives (0-3). The projects help to improve children’s emotional and social development, communication and language development and nutrition. We are funded by The National Lottery Community Fund, using National Lottery funding, for 10 years (until 2025).

We aim to leave a lasting legacy for children, families and the whole area.
