BCBF aimed to identify and implement strategies to promote more inclusive antenatal and universal early childhood services which better engage and assist vulnerable families. It was funded to add value to the Best Start program, a three year initiative that aimed to improve the health, development, learning and wellbeing of young children across Victoria from pregnancy through to eight years. Best Start was conducted in 11 local government areas and two Indigenous communities, characterised by above-average levels of disadvantage. BCBF was conducted in three of the 11 Best Start local government areas. ; The Brotherhood of St Laurence (BSL) was contracted by the Department of Human Services for a 12 month period to undertake the BCBF project.
