Partnership is at the heart of our work to promote healthier families and communities.

HENRY in Bradford

Better Start is an exciting ten year Big Lottery funded programme to improve outcomes for children through prevention and early intervention projects with 0-3 year olds and their families. HENRY is working in partnership with Better Start Bradford. Our experience in delivering effective, evidence-based family programmes means we are well placed to support parents in these crucial early years to develop and maintain healthy lifestyles for the whole family.

HENRY is running group and 1-to-1 Healthy Families programmes for parents and carers of young children. We’re also training volunteers to support families in Better Start Bradford communities as well as providing training for practitioners and child care settings working in the area.

The Cooking for a Better Start project, also run by HENRY, helps parents learn to cook cheap, healthy meals for their family.
