Research has the potential to save lives and to improve the quality of life for premature and sick babies for generations to come.
Bliss is currently supporting £10.1million of research which is responsible for significant improvements in the care and treatment of babies born premature or sick.
Our aim is to make the biggest difference to the lives of babies by carefully identifying and funding research projects and collaborating with others to support large-scale projects.
We believe having parents involved in research projects, at the planning stages and throughout, is essential to ensure babies’ interests are always at the heart of neonatal research. Bliss works with academics and researchers to support parental involvement in research, and we make sure our information reflects the latest research and evidence.
We had limited information about early nutrition before now but this study has given us clear results and lots of other important information about how to manage nutrition in the critical period after a baby is born. This research should help improve the survival chances and life quality of future generations of premature babies.

Over the next three years Bliss will support vital research by:
- Identifying our key priorities and outcomes for funding so that we contribute to research that can make the biggest difference to babies
- Supporting research projects that will increase the body of neonatal evidence and deliver positive change for babies
- Expanding on our work engaging parents in research
- Sharing research findings with others to create the biggest impact possible
- Ensuring our information for parents reflects the latest research and evidence.
