BSB - healthy families

HENRY in Bradford

Better Start Bradford works with families to help give children the best possible start in life.

Healthy Families programmes

HENRY is running our Healthy Families programmes for parents across the Better Start areas of Bradford: in Bowling & Barkerend, Bradford Moor and Little Horton. This is a free 8 week programme for parents and carers of babies and young children to support the whole family to develop a healthy lifestyle.

There are two different ways you can take part in the HENRY Healthy Families programme:

  • Group programme 
    roup programmes are held in Children’s Centres across Better Start Bradford areas.

  • 1-to-1 programme
    If you find it difficult to attend a group – for example, if the idea of going to a group is worrying, or where groups are not running at a time or venue that works for your family, HENRY also run 1-to-1 support for families with a child under 5 who live in the Better Start area.

    Please contact Nicola if you would like to receive 1-to-1 support from a member of our team, on 07709640454 or
