Strong communities, built by the people who live in them.

Giving Southend’s children the best possible start.

A £40m, 10-year programme to develop and test children’s services.

Welcome to A Better Start Southend.

For happier children and stronger communities. Now and in the future.

At A Better Start Southend we know local people can make great things happen. We’re investing £40m over ten years to improve the lives of Southend’s very youngest residents; and we’re working with local people every step of the way to find out how to give every child who lives here the best possible start in life.

A Better Start Southend is here for you, whether you’re a parent or carer of a child under four, if you’re expecting a baby, or if you work with young children in Southend.

You can sign up here to find out more, share your suggestions for what Southend’s families need and tell us how we make it happen. Working together we can make sure that our children’s start in life is shaped by the people who care about them the most.

Find out if you are eligible for A Better Start Southend’s services.
