What are Children's Centres?

The core purpose of Sure Start children’s centres is to improve outcomes for young children and their families, with a particular focus on those in greatest need. They work to make sure all children are properly prepared for school, regardless of background or family circumstances. They also offer support to parents.

Healthy Start Vitamins

 Healthy Start vitamins

Even though we can get lots of vitamins from a healthy diet, at certain times such as pregnancy or during early childhood, we might not get enough. During these times it is recommended that we should take a supplement. Children, up to their fourth birthday, pregnant women and women with a baby under one on Healthy Start will receive a green Healthy Start vitamin coupon to exchange for vitamins every eight weeks. Healthy Start vitamins for children are for children from birth and who are having less than 500ml (one pint) of infant formula a day.

In Calderdale Healthy Start vitamin coupons can be exchanged for free vitamins at the following Children’s Centres:

  • Elland Children’s Centre: Boxall Road, Elland HX5 0BB
  • Innovations Children’s Centre: Cousin Lane, Ovenden, Halifax HX2 8DQ
  • Jubilee Children’s Centre: Lightowler Road, Halifax HX1 5NB
  • Todmorden Children’s Centre: Todmorden Community College, Burnley Road, Todmorden OL14 7BX
