The date shown above is the course start date – this course takes place every Monday from 4 October 2021 for eight weeks.
The HENRY Virtual Group Programme is an eight-week course for parents with babies and children under five. It aims to help develop healthy lifestyle habits including food, activity, and families’ daily routines.
This one is aimed at families in the Better Start Bradford area (Bowling and Barkerend, Bradford Moor and Little Horton), so that local families can get to know each other. However, if you live in Bradford but outside the Better Start Bradford area, we can keep your details on a waiting list in case we have drop outs or to let you know about other programmes that start in your area.
Sessions will be delivered online – when you sign up we will talk you through how this works.
