About LEAP

Lambeth Early Action Partnership (LEAP) is one of five local partnerships which make up A Better Start — a national ten-year (2015-2025) programme funded by the National Lottery Community Fund that aims to improve the life chances of babies, very young children, and families. We listen to the expertise of parents and carers.Our aim is to help families build connections, and to provide meaningful experiences for parents, carers, and their children.

LEAP’s programme is drawing to an end in September 2024

Most LEAP services are now being delivered by other organisations in Lambeth. As LEAP transitions services and activities to local partners, there will be some changes to dates, times, and locations of activities. We will give regular updates.

The Lambeth family information service provides signposting to wider Lambeth services.

Lambeth children’s centres are hubs which host activities, and provide support and a central point for families. Take a look at Better Start Children's Centre timetables | Lambeth Council.
