Bliss's vision is that every baby born premature or sick in the UK has the best chance of survival and quality of life.

One in every 7 babies in the UK is born either premature or sick. Over 100,000 babies need neonatal care every year in the UK.

The vital care that babies receive after birth can have a profound impact on the rest of their lives. For families struggling to cope, this will be one of the most difficult, emotional and stressful times of their lives.

Bliss is the UK's leading charity for premature and sick babies.

We believe that premature and sick babies deserve the best chance of survival and quality of life. We aim to make this a reality by:

  • Supporting parents of babies born premature or sick to be as involved as possible in care and decision-making for their babies.
  • Supporting neonatal professionals to deliver high quality baby-centred care and involve parents actively in their babies' care.
  • Placing premature and sick babies' voices at the heart of decision-making to ensure that their best interests are always put first.
  • Supporting research that can tangibly improve outcomes for babies born premature or sick.

Bliss is active across England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, delivering a range of nationally available services.

“Bliss was invaluable in helping us to understand what Tom was going through, and we knew they would be there for us if we needed more advice or support.”
Rebecca Kingsley, mother of Tom Benford, born at 26 weeks.
