Consultation process

As outlined below

Consultees

The parents and community have been an integral part of the bid writing process and they have formed their own Better Start Partnership Group. They have been fully consulted on every aspect of the bid and a number of parents and community organisations along with public sector strategy leaders spent two whole days in January planning the bid priorities, outcomes and projects. The community and parents will continue to be a part of the Better Start process.
