Statutory and Voluntary sector organisations can apply for up to £250.00 to do a one-off summer event for families with an emphasis on promotion of free early education and childcare for 2 year olds.  We have funding for organisations/groups in the Better Start Bradford area (Bowling and Barkerend, Bradford Moor and Little Horton) to run a summer event/activity for under 3’s.  

Activities must focus on helping children:

Eat well and be healthy
Talk and communicate well
Be confident, friendly and understand their emotions and behaviour  

The application process is easy:

Please email:

How much money is being requested?
The number of families projected to engage in the event.
How will you promote two-year offer? – for example leaflets shared, signposting to Nurseries, early years settings and Bradford East Family Hub. (We will supply leaflets to hand out)

You will hear if you have been successful by Friday 6 August 2021. There will be no formal monitoring requirements, however, if people get permission and want to share photo’s with Better Start Bradford that would be appreciated.
