Better Start Bradford

The NIHR CLAHRC YH Health children Healthy families theme provides support and shares academic expertise with Better Start Bradford project.
 
Better Start Bradford is a partnership programme working with families to help give children the best possible start in life in the Bowling & Barkerend, Bradford Moor and Little Horton areas of Bradford.  The project is developing and commissioning a broad range of projects that support, inform and engage families expecting babies or with children under four, and professionals and organisations working with them.  Over 20 projects to support families exist and you can read all about them

One of the unique aspects is that Born in Bradford are working with BSB to evaluate projects through a range of methods including a novel experimental birth cohort -  BiBBS (Born in Bradford’s Better Start) that will recruit 5000 expectant families and follow them as the child grows up using routinely collected data including which BSB projects they have attended
