Anyone of any age and background, living or working in the Better Start Bradford area can become a Community Champion.
We don’t ask for any qualifications or previous experience and we provide training; all you need to bring is a real interest in improving the lives of expectant parents and families with children aged 0-3. We’d love to hear from you if you’d like to make a difference in your community.

Here's what some of our Community Champions say...
Better Start Bradford really do put the community voice at the heart of everything that they do. I have never seen that level of community co-production from any other organisation.
I've gained so much confidence. Being a Community Champion has given me opportunities to try new things that a few years ago I would never have done.
I've met so many fantastic people – they often seem very different from me at first but we always find we have a lot in common.
