Better Start Bradford is looking for organisations to deliver our Breastfeeding Support service which we will be putting out to tender in January. Better Start Bradford is a Big Lottery funded project, working in the three Bradford wards of Bradford Moor, Bowling and Barkerend and Little Horton to improve outcomes for children aged 0-3, including pregnancy. We have developed a new approach to tendering supported by eMBED and we will invite all organisations who respond to this EOI to tender for the project they are interested in. Tendering for Better Start Bradford projects is restricted to VCSE organisations who are legally constituted

Breastfeeding Support

The Breastfeeding support project will provide one-to-one support for new mums in their home as soon as possible after the birth. The supporter will offer help to establish and sustain breastfeeding. In addition the project will work with local communities and organisations in the Better Start Bradford area to develop a breastfeeding friendly community. Providers should have experience of delivering a similar project.

Contract period           3 years delivery plus 3 months set-up from 1st May 2018

Contract value            £ 469,000 total for 3 years 3 months

In the first instance we want to hear from organisations who wish to be included on the tender list for these contracts. Full details of the contracts will be included in the Invitation to Tender. The Invitation to Tender will only be available to organisations who have submitted an Expression of Interest (EOI). Please let us know basic details of your organisation and we will add your name to the list
