Find out about the support available to parents, family and friends of babies born premature or sick.

Following the outbreak of coronavirus (COVID-19) and the current government guidance, Bliss Champions will not visit neonatal units until further notice. We are currently testing out a remote volunteering service. For more information and support, please email

Bliss Champions

Bliss Champions provide a vital link between parents, neonatal units and Bliss services, to ensure that families can gain access to the information and support services that we provide.

Bliss aims to ensure that all families with a baby on a neonatal unit for more than 24 hours have access to our resources and support.

Independent Family Groups

Independent Family Groups are run by a mixture of parents and health professionals in the community.

These groups can provide emotional support and information to families of premature or sick babies.

Please note: Bliss lists information about Independent Family Groups across the UK however we are not responsible for running these groups.

Anyone can also access peer support through the Bliss and Netmums forum
