We have been appointed by A Better Start Southend, a 10-year programme to ensure that all Southend’s children have the best possible start in life.
Funded by the Big Lottery Fund in partnership with Southend-on-Sea Borough Council and the Pre-School Learning Alliance, the project aims to test the effectiveness of early intervention in the lives of children from birth up to their fourth birthdays. A focus on the co-production of children’s services sees parents and the wider community involved at every stage. We have been recruited to provide a range of public relations support to help communicate the programme’s progress and impact.
A Better Start Southend’s Interim Strategic Communications Lead Penny Neu says: “We’re pleased to have Amazon on board. Investing in services for very young children and their families helps reduce the challenges they’ll face later in life. A Better Start Southend is an amazing opportunity to deliver long-term change in Southend, creating a lasting legacy for generations to come.”
