Have a look at what some of our board members say about their experience as an NHP Board member.
It’s already half term! With the children coming home to local and national restrictions, we have thought about how we could provide support whilst our children are home for the break, as we climax Black History Month . Please click on the links below which will take you to all the activities based around Black History Month. Each link will send you to a folder:
Each folder has a video of the resource and then some activities children could do after they’ve watched the videos. From a general overview, we can say that these activities would cover areas in the curriculum including understanding the world, creative art and design ,communication, literacy , ICT and community just to mention a few!

North Halifax Partnership has had Quality for Health assurance since 2016. Most recently we were delighted to be assured at Level 2 in May 2019, when the assessor reported:
Overall, I found the service to be excellent, in its impact upon individual lives and the larger community.
We have 20 years’ experience of connecting local people of all ages with opportunities and support through our Children’s Centre services; Ovenden & Mixenden Initiative community programmes; and Staying Well providing in the words of our assessment an entirely person centred approach across all services.
….because babies don’t come with a set of instructions.
We know that dads want important information on how to care for their new baby, and what to expect. The DadPad® can help, by giving you the knowledge and practical skills that you need in order to give your baby the best start in life, look after yourself and support your partner.
What you need to know about The DadPad:
Is an easy-to-use, up-to-date resource for dads-to-be and new dads
It covers topic such as
Feeding, holding, changing and cleaning your baby
Surviving without sleep and coping with crying
Getting to know your baby
Looking after yourself and supporting your partner
How do I get a Dadpad?
The DadPads are for first time fathers -to -be and will be given out when you attend Antenatal Clinics when you attend with your partner. If you cannot attend don’t worry….. your partner can bring a consent form home for you to complete as we will need to contact you after a few months for some feedback and once the signed consent form is returned we will hand out your DadPad (while stocks last)
Quote from Julian Bose, Director of Inspire Cornwall CIC:
“The DadPad was created because babies don’t come with a set of instructions, and dads told us that there was important information that they wanted to be given on what to expect and how to care for their baby. We listened to what dads, their partners and health professionals asked for and combined it all in the DadPad.
“We are excited to have been given the opportunity by the team at North Halifax Partnership Sure Start Children’s Centres to launch the DadPad in Yorkshire for the first time.”
