Better Start Bradford, Parents in the Lead activities fund 2019

28 January 2019

The Parents in the Lead activities fund is designed to help parents run activities for their and other families expecting babies or with children under four, in the Better Start Bradford area (Bowling and Barkerend, Bradford Moor and Little Horton).

The funder is particularly interested to hear from parents who are not currently involved in local activities for babies and children, to support them to organise activities. The majority of those benefiting from this fund must be families expecting babies or children under four and their parents.

You can apply once a year for a maximum of £2,500. However the funder expects the usual grant amount will be £500.

Activity criteria

Activities should benefit babies and children aged under four and help to:

  • Contribute towards their social and emotional development
  • Develop communication and language
  • Improve nutrition and health


There are opportunities to apply throughout the year. The next deadline is 28 March 2019. Find out more and how to apply.
