The Bright Beginnings project worked to improve the physical health and mental wellbeing of refugee and migrant women and their children in North East London from the beginning of their pregnancy up until their child's first birthday. It sought to tackle three key issues:

  • lack of knowledge and understanding on maternity services in the UK
  • language and cultural barriers
  • lack of social support and social networks
