Better Start Bradford's New Cohort Study

What is Better Start Bradford?

Better Start Bradford is an exciting new programme that offers parents and children living in the wards of Bowling and Barkerend, Bradford Moor and Little Horton, the opportunity to be involved in projects that will help give children a good start in life. The projects will help to improve children’s language and communication and their emotional and physical health.

What is Born in Bradford's Better Start (BiBBS)?

The BiBBS research is going to show the impact that the Better Start Bradford programme is having on children and their families. This will help us to plan healthier and happier lives for families who live in the city of Bradford and across England. We would like mums and dads and their new babies in the Better Start Bradford area to join the BiBBS research. We hope that 6,000 babies and their families will join the research project

How do I find out more about BiBBS?

If you live in the Better Start Bradford area (map below), when you or your partner see your midwife they will give you an Information Sheet that explains the details of the BiBBS study.
