Best Start in Life

27 June 2022 - 9:30am to 12:30pm

Giving our children the best possible start in life is something we all want to do.  But do we truly know why the first 1001 days (pregnancy and the first two years of a child’s life) are so important and why it is a period of unique rapid growth and importance? 

We are holding an event on Monday 27 June 2022 facilitated by Public Health South Tees and MVDA to share what is happening locally around Best Start in Life (BSiL) and understand how the voluntary and community sector (VCS) play their part in giving local children the best start in life.
