A Better Start Southend
A Better Start Southend is about using new ways of thinking to solve some of the problems that have affected local children and families for years. We are one of five Better Start areas across the country funded by the Big Lottery Fund.
We are a partnership of local organisations who have years of experience working with families and young children. Most importantly, we’re working with local parents and carers to find out what needs to change if we are going to give Southend’s children the best start they can have.
Parents and carers are involved every step of the way: raising the problems that need solving, coming up with some answers, and helping us test good ideas.
