We are a community-led partnership programme working with families to help give children the best possible start in life in our part of Bradford: Bowling & Barkerend, Bradford Moor and Little Horton.
Led by Bradford Trident, we have been funded by the Big Lottery Fund to run the programme over 10 years. Working with local partners, we aim to leave a lasting legacy of all our children having the best start in life, and families being supported and heard. We hope the new way of working together can be rolled out in other areas too.
We're part of a network of five 'A Better Start' programmes around the UK, and we'll be sharing information and lessons between us and more widely across the country. We're also proud to be a community partnership strongly rooted in our local area.
Over 10 years, we'll be developing and commissioning 22 projects that support, inform and engage families that are expecting babies or have children under four, and professionals that work with them - many of these are already up and running.
