Since June 2020, the Department of Education has part-funded the Bookstart Baby programme in Northern Ireland. This has allowed BookTrust NI to extend its delivery of Bookstart Baby packs and books to all families in the region.
In August 2021, the Department of Education announced that it would be extending its funding of Bookstart Baby to provide book packs to families with babies born in 2021.
Bookstart Baby packs are gifted to babies by their Health Visitor, usually at the 12-14 week or 6-9 month check. If you haven’t received your pack, please contact your Health Visitor.
