Caring for Your Family

Better Start Bradford

We know the earliest years are critical to a child’s future and want children across the Better Start Bradford area and beyond to have the best possible start in life, in terms of their health, well-being and life chances.

We’re finding out what works so we can share it to promote wider change. To do this we’ve set up over 15 individual projects – plus other complementary strands of work – focusing on health, social and emotional development and communication, and we are evaluating their impact.

Most of the projects run only in the Better Start areas – broadly Little Horton, Bowling and Barkerend and Bradford Moor – but some are available throughout the Bradford area. To find out whether a particular address is in a Better Start area use the Better Start Bradford postcode checker. All sessions and classes are free.
