There are over 30 free events and activities on offer led by organisations across the Bradford district. A BIG thank you to all of them, especially at this time when things are so challenging for everyone.
We know this has been a tough year, with many families and individuals struggling with financial, health and isolation concerns. By supporting the wellbeing of babies, children and their caregivers through this time we can help develop strong supportive communities.
Wellbeing matters for babies. We want them to get the best start in life in terms of their physical, emotional and social health as this impacts the way they develop, communicate and interact with other people and the world around them. Healthy, happy, resilient babies are more likely to become healthy, happy, resilient adults.
Wellbeing matters for caregivers too. When they are able to maximise their own mental, physical and social wellbeing they are able to care for others in the best way they can.
Many of the family events and activities during Baby Week Bradford are opportunities to pick up hints, tips and inspiration to take back into everyday family life, helping build an environment that has wellbeing at its heart. There are also opportunities for professionals working within pregnancy and early years to explore a number of topics in more depth, including infant mental health, the parent-infant relationship, health inequalities and more.
Please visit our resources page for logos, social media images, templates and other things to help you prepare for your event.
