The Healthy Start scheme offers eligible people a pre-paid card to go towards the cost of certain types of milk, infant formula, fruit and vegetables for the value of:
- £4.25 each week of pregnancy from the 10th week
- £8.50 each week for children from birth to 1 year old
- £4.25 each week for children between 1 and 4 years old
Beneficiaries can also get free vitamins with their card. In B&NES, these are currently available at Children’s Centres.
Note that the digital pre-paid card has replaced Healthy Start vouchers. For more information, view: https://www.healthystart.nhs.uk/
Hot off the press! B&NES Cash First leaflet puts all the local agencies that people can self-refer to around money worries in one place. Please do also circulate this to people in your local areas. Thank you.
It’s important that all local drivers are aware of the details surrounding Bath’s CAZ, even if their vehicle is not going to be charged in the zone.
