Flying Start is Luton’s framework to providing the best outcomes for children and their families from pregnancy to their 5th birthday, as a foundation to a healthy future.
Flying Start works with a range of partner agencies to ensure that all young children in Luton have a Flying Start in life, by intervening early when help and support is needed.
Flying Start will deliver services that will:
- support improved birth outcomes and encourage healthy diet and lifestyles for babies, young children and their families
