Small Steps Big Changes have produced a vibrant infographic to show all the things that have been delivered in Year 1 of the A Better Start programme in Nottingham.

On their list of achievements in 2015/16 include the upgrading of 6 community buildings, a new home visiting programme for babies in their first year, over 4000 library books delivered to over 1000 children, and plenty more parenting and family support.

The Small Steps Big Changes (SSBC) project won almost £45m from the Big Lottery Fund when organisations across the area came together to create a vision for improving outcomes for the city’s babies and toddlers in Aspley, Bulwell, the Arboretum and St Ann’s. SSBC is led by Nottingham CityCare Partnership CIC, in partnership with Nottingham City Council, Nottingham CVS and local parents.

A Better Start is a £215 million investment by the Big Lottery Fund, launched in October 2012 to improve the life chances of some of the most vulnerable babies and children in England.
