TAKE UP OF HEALTHY START PROGRAMME
This map shows the take up of the UK's National Health Service Healthy Start programme for the period May 2018 to May 2019. The programme offers pregnant women, or those who have a child under four years old, Healthy Start vouchers. These vouchers can be used to help buy some basic foods and vitamins. This important, means-tested scheme provides vouchers to spend with local retailers. More details on the Healthy Start scheme are linked here.
Many thanks to the Healthy Start Team at the NHS for sharing the underlying data.
