Learning from targeted support in pregnancy and early childhood

The National Children’s Bureau is coordinating an ambitious programme of shared learning for A Better Start, the ten-year project set-up by The National Lottery Community Fund, the largest funder of community activity in the UK.

Better Start Bradford and the other four A Better Start partnerships based in Blackpool, Lambeth, Nottingham and Southend are supporting families to give their babies and very young children the best possible start in life. Working with local parents, the A Better Start partnerships are developing and testing ways to improve their children’s diet and nutrition, social and emotional development, and speech, language and communication.

The work, made possible with funds raised by National Lottery players, will share the partnerships experiences in creating innovative services far and wide, so that others working in early childhood development or place-based systems change can benefit.
