Flying Start
October 24, 2022

November 5th marks six months since the local elections. 

We stood on an ambitious manifesto that put the people of our city first – and we set to work straight away, delivering our promises and pledges. 

In the run up to November 5th, we’ll share how we’re already working on and delivering our manifesto promises, starting today with Flying Start.

From this autumn, with support from Welsh Government, an additional 187 Flying Start places have been added across the city, offering eligible families 12.5 hours of funded, high-quality care for 39 weeks of the year, delivered by qualified workers who can support children’s development and nurturing.

“Children under four will benefit from an enhanced health visiting programme and access to speech, language and communication support where it is needed,” Cabinet Member Debbie Harvey said. 

“Flying Start is a fantastic scheme and I’m delighted that we are now able to offer this provision to more families in more areas of the city.”
