About the Cluster


Bramley Cluster is one of many areas in Leeds where agencies, schools and childcare settings, have made a commitment to work together with children, young people and their families to improve lives.

The purpose of this partnership is to provide early help, early intervention and preventative services for children, young people and families. The overall aim is to give children and young people who live or are enrolled at schools in Bramley the very best start and to improve their life chances so that they can achieve their full potential. This includes working to improve the three ‘As’ for children and young people –  their ‘attendance’ at school, their ability to ‘achieve’ well socially and their academic ‘attainment’.

Bramley Cluster Partnership drives forward the development and delivery of children and family services to meet the Leeds City-wide Children and Young People’s Plan

 Bramley Cluster delivers activity and services to families of children and young people across the 0 to 19 age range. This includes delivering children centre family services across the Bramley area through the Children's Centre Hub sites, other local community venues and within the family home. Also working as a part of the Early Start Team, the Cluster's family support practitioners deliver many services for families of very young children in partnership with local health visitors.
