What is Better Start Bradford?

Better Start Bradford is an exciting new programme working with families to help give children the best possible start in life in Bowling & Barkerend, Bradford Moor and Little Horton. Better Start Bradford are coordinating 22 projects that support, inform and engage families expecting babies or with children under four, and professionals and organisations working with them. The projects will help improve children’s health, social and emotional development and communication.

 What is Born in Bradford’s Better Start (BiBBS)?

The BiBBS research is going to show the impact that the Better Start Bradford programme is having on children and their families. This will help us to plan healthier and happier lives for families who live in the city of Bradford and across England. We would like mums and dads and their new babies in the Better Start Bradford area to join the BiBBS research. We hope that 6,000 babies and their families will join the research project

How do I find out more about BiBBS?
