Better Start Bradford
BSB has formed a partnership with the long-running Born in Bradford Birth Cohort study to establish a new birth cohort; Born in Bradford’s Better Start (BiBBS). Families within BSB are invited to take part in BiBBS at routine pregnancy appointments. The cohort will allow us to follow the journey of families using routinely collected data from health, education and BSB projects which will enable evaluations of BSB projects.
The programmes commissioned by BSB have different levels of evidence and are at different stages in their development and delivery. The project uses a wide range of methodologies to evaluate the programmes and improve the evidence base for early intervention in these key areas.

The project is funded by the National Lottery Community Fund.
