Flying Start is all about parents, communities and organisations working together to improve how we deliver services for children and families. Flying Start’s vision highlights the value of the talent in our communities and seeks to empower local people to drive change at a local level.
How can I get involved?
By joining one of our local Community Partnerships or standing for election to our Area Partnership to help shape the work that we do with babies, young children and their families or by becoming a Flying Start Volunteer
Flying Start’s Community Partnership
Working with families and communities is at the heart of what drives Flying Start. Working in partnership is important to ensure we understand how to improve children’s lives and respond to what is important for parents.
Flying Start‘s Community Partnership provides the means by which people living and working in the Flying Start wards can get involved in directing the Flying Start programme and ensure it delivers exactly what is needed by parents.
The partnership is made up of a wide range of representatives including parents, community leaders, people who work with families from the voluntary sector and also includes health visitors, midwives, early years managers and workers, children centres staff and faith leaders to name just a few.
Representatives from the Community Partnership sit on the Flying Start Area Partnership and are involved in making decisions about the how Flying Start is delivered.
