Bliss Christmas appeal

Over 300 babies will need special care on Christmas Day. Will you donate this Christmas to help support them?

Our Bliss Champion volunteers are a lifeline; we’re adapting the service as needs are changing.

In these challenging times we’ve moved our support to a video-call service for parents across the UK with a baby currently in neonatal care, as well as those recently discharged home. We are also starting to get volunteers back on units where we can – cautiously, and only in hospitals where full parent access has been restored.

Your ongoing support is truly amazing and vital to everything we do to help premature and sick babies. Anything you can spare will mean that another family is supported during this most difficult of times.
