COVID-19 - Healthy Start Vouchers

Can I still apply for Healthy Start vouchers?

The Healthy Start scheme is continuing during the coronavirus outbreak. You will still receive your Healthy Start vouchers and you can still make a new application if you are entitled to the vouchers.

Healthy Start vouchers are for pregnant women, and parents of young children. If you meet the criteria you can get free vitamins and vouchers that can be used for milk (including first formula milk) vegetables and fruit. Eating a varied diet with plenty of fruit and vegetables helps us stay well along with helping our mood and energy levels.

How do I apply?

During the outbreak, application forms do not have to be signed by a health professional. The person completing the application must still sign the form.

  • You can ask your midwife or health visitor about the scheme and they will be able to send you a form.
