Our Work in Bradford

Family Action offers a range of services across the Bradford District. We work in partnership
with local and national organisations to meet the changing needs of children and families.

Perinatal Support Service

Trained volunteers provide peer support to families where a parent is struggling with their emotional health or wellbeing during pregnancy and the first year after birth. This service is part of Better Start Bradford.
