Welcome to Small Steps Big Changes

Small Steps Big Changes (SSBC) is a programme of activities designed to give every child the best start in life. We are funded through the National Lottery Community Fund's A Better Start Programme. 

Our projects and groups focus on helping children to:

  • learn to talk and communicate
  • be confident, friendly and understand their emotions & behaviour
  • enjoy eating well and staying healthy.

All of our groups and activities are FREE and available to families who are either expecting a baby or who have a child under the age of 4 and live in:

  • Aspley
  • Bulwell
  • Hyson Green and Arboretum
  • St Ann’s

A Better Start is the ten-year (2015-2025), £215 million programme set-up by The National Lottery Community Fund.  There are five A Better Start partnerships: in Blackpool, Bradford, Lambeth, Nottingham and Southend.  Each partnership works closely with parents to test and learn from new approaches to designing services which aim to make people’s lives healthier and happier.
