Biography

Neil Small  BSc (Econ); MSW; PhD; FAcSS has been a Professor at Bradford since 1999. He previously held posts in the University of Sheffield and the University of York. He is a Fellow of the Academy of Social Sciences. 

Neil is a social scientist who has had an ongoing interest in health policy and health inequalities. For some years his research focused on chronic and life-threatening illnesses with a particular interest in end of life care. More recent concerns have been in health inequalities in babies and young children with a special emphasis on the impact of ethnicity. This interest is reflected in his position as Academic Lead for the birth cohort study Born in Bradford.

Current Projects

The focus of ongoing work is on the Born in Bradford birth cohort study. Some projects have been completed others are ongoing.

Ongoing projects

Better Start Bradford

(2015 - 2025) Better Start Bradford, a community partnership led by Bradford Trident, has been awarded £49 million from the Big Lottery “A Better Start” initiative to help parents give their children the best start in life in three Better Start Bradford areas (Bowling and Barkerend, Bradford Moor and Little Horton). Over ten years, a portfolio of projects will engage with approximately 20,000 children, to improve their social and emotional wellbeing, their communication and language skills and their diet and nutrition. Approximately 1,430 babies are born each year within the Better Start Bradford areas.

The Better Start Bradford Innovation Hub is a key component of the Better Start Bradford programme that will provide the main platform for monitoring and evaluation of all Better Start Bradford projects, and learning from findings. This will be achieved through three key work-streams: social and emotional development; communication and language development; and nutrition and obesity, and an additional workstream that was put forward by the community: neighbourhood and environment. These will work alongside three cross-cutting themes: The Better Start Bradford Cohort; Community readiness and engagement; Implementation and fidelity.

The Innovation Hub builds on the firm foundation Born in Bradford have developed within Bradford over the last 7 years to develop a Centre of Excellence in the translation of tailored and effective early years interventions into practice. It will do this by continuing to build on the strong academic, practitioner, and community networks already developed by existing research infrastructure, and will be embedded within the internationally recognised Born in Bradford research programme. The Innovation Hub is led by leading academics from the University of Bradford, University of York, Bradford Institute for Health Research, University of Leeds and Leeds Beckett University.
