Newcastle – Independent Family Group

Wishaw - Bliss Champion

Have you had a premature or sick baby? The Royal Victoria Infirmary (RVI) in Newcastle Special Care Baby family support team have set up a ‘befriending buddy system’ to help parents on and off the neonatal unit to contact other parents to gain information and support.

Where: Royal Victoria Infirmary, Queen Victoria Rd, Newcastle upon Tyne, Tyne and Wear, NE1 4LP

The group also meets informally for a chat and cuppa on the unit.

Contact: Please contact Claire via email at if you would like to attend the group or speak on the phone to local parents or grandparents who have experienced neonatal care.

Please note: Independent Family Groups are not run by Bliss, therefore Bliss cannot be held responsible for the coordination of these groups.                

For further support, please email or call the Bliss helpline.
