Healthy Start information

Please be aware during these difficult times that people may be eligible for food and vitamin vouchers through the national  Healthy Start scheme.  People eligible for Healthy Start are pregnant women and families (with children under 4) on benefits and low incomes. Eligible women and families receive food vouchers worth £3.10 per week, and more when their child is under a year old. Eligible pregnant women and children are also entitled to free vitamins.

For more information about the scheme see https://www.healthystart.nhs.uk/

Application forms can be printed off from the site https://www.healthystart.nhs.uk/healthy-start-vouchers/how-to-apply/

Healthy Start application leaflets for the public can also be ordered by telephoning  0300 123 1002 and quoting the reference number for the leaflet (HS01a). https://www.healthystart.nhs.uk/for-health-professionals/healthy-start-resources/ . Leaflets are free including free delivery. You will simply need to provide a name and address for delivery and the name of your organisation.

The form does require the signature of a health professional, usually a midwife or a health visitor, before it is sent off.
