A Better Start

Healthy, Happy, and Ready To Learn

Early child health and development begins in communities where children are conceived, grow-up, learn and play in a positive way. The Better Start partnership is responsible for implementing services which families need for their children to be healthy, happy and ready to learn. We are determined to make a decisive change to transform their life chances. We want to achieve a generational shift, ensuring that today’s babies enjoy the early care and nurture they need for healthy development and to be ready for school, and that in turn, as they grow up and become parents themselves, they will pass on the Better Start legacy to the next generation.
