Caring for Your Family

Better Start Bradford

Better Start Bradford runs several projects for families with young children and is keen to encourage participation by asylum seeker and refugee families. If you would like to know more or would like to talk about a particular project, please contact Sally Teasdale at [email protected] or on 07494 558337

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.

These classes are for pregnant women who would otherwise need an interpreter for antenatal appointments and during the birth of their child.

The classes are for two hours, once a week for five weeks.
