Abstract Older Yet Wiser Better Start Bradford is a Lottery-funded Programme to improve outcomes for children aged 0-3 in the most deprived and diverse areas of Bradford. Many of our children are in extended families where Grandparents have a strong influence. We worked with Childsside CIC to introduce a parenting course for Grandparents to support their role in positively influencing the health and development of the youngest members.We first ran taster sessions for a group of Grandparents and a group of local practitioners working with families. We also conducted consultation activities to establish need, and willingness to engage. This was followed by a pilot of a parenting course designed by Childsside CIC, “Older Yet Wiser” delivered to local Grandparents. The course ran for 8 weeks and was based on Family Links Nuturing Course, covering child development, support for language development, healthy behaviours and good nutrition and children's social and emotional development. This was repeated with another group in a different part of the area. Both courses were evaluated for satisfaction and behaviour change.Courses were attended by 22 grandparents of 0-3s in total, from a range of backgrounds. Some of the Grandparents were non-english speaking so interpreters were used and the course adapted to allow for this. Sessions were well-attended and 60% of started completed the course. All participants were positive about the course and the majority (90%) said they would make changes as a result of attending. They all said they would share the learning with their wider families.
