Better Start Imagine

Contact details and a summary of what our projects are delivering during the COVID-19 pandemic can be found at: https://www.betterstartbradford.org.uk/news/stillheretohelp/


Reading to young children helps them in so many ways. Stories help their brains develop, set their imaginations alight and can help build their confidence and self-esteem.

Through our Better Start Imagine project, children living in the Better Start Bradford area (Bowling and Barkerend, Bradford Moor and Little Horton) can receive a free book every single month from birth until their fifth birthday. Check if you’re in this area using our postcode checker.

Better Start Imagine is provided by local organisation BHT Early Education & Training and is part of Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library.

Register for your free books online here.

The Better Start Imagine team also runs weekly story and rhyme time sessions in local libraries (currently running online due to COVID-19) and Baby Club which includes baby massage, baby signing and rhyming. Visit our events calendar for dates and details.
