Blackpool Better Start
Supporting families by helping parents give children the best possible start in life.
We know that being a parent can be tough and we provide free events, services and programmes that help lighten the load. If you’ve got a baby on the way or a child under 4, Blackpool Better Start is here for you.
All our services have been created with Blackpool parents, for Blackpool parents. They range from antenatal classes at your local Children’s Centre, to services that help with heavier problems like addiction and anger in the home. We also run lots of fun activities in parks, libraries and Children’s Centres, that focus on reading, health and wellbeing. It’s a great chance to help your child’s learning and meet other Blackpool families.
Blackpool Better Start delivers a variety of free learning, training and conference opportunities for anyone working with pregnant women and families with children aged 0-4 years in Blackpool. We work with international, early-years experts and want to embed this knowledge within the local workforce to improve outcomes for families across the town.
The Blackpool community is at the heart of everything we do. If you share our passion for improving the lives of children in Blackpool then we’d love to hear from you. We can offer volunteering roles that will help you gain confidence and skills, and we can provide free childcare.
