Blackpool Better Start – Our Partners and Stakeholders
Better Start is a multi-agency partnership in Blackpool between the NSPCC, Local Authority, Blackpool Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundations Trust and Blackpool Clinical Commissioning Group looking at improving the outcomes of our children pre birth to three years old.
The partnership and it’s work is funded by the National Lottery Community Fund and has funding for 10 years between 2015-2025 in seven wards in Blackpool: Bloomfield, Talbot, Brunswick, Claremont, Park, Victoria and Clifton. During this time we will be looking at the outcomes for children in three specific areas: diet and nutrition, language and communication and social and emotional development.
The Better Start partnership also includes representatives from community groups, police, and voluntary nursery settings to ensure that all in the Early Years Workforce are committed to supporting parents to provide our children with the best start in life.
