BIBS funds a professional Family Support Practitioner that runs drop-in sessions three times a week. We also operate a Parent Support evening once a week run by volunteer former Buscot parents.


BIBS manages and refurbishes parent and family facilities on the ward such as a family lounge and overnight accomodation.


BIBS aims to raise awareness of the issues faced by parents and babies on the unit. We work with the hospital and other organisations to make this most stressful of journeys as smooth as possible.


BIBS fundraises to help supply the latest technology and equipment that will aid in the care and development of babies on Buscot Ward.


A big shout of thanks to all at the Tots @TMC (Tilehurst Methodist Church) group. This wonderful group held a cake sale each morning for a week, and also put their creative skills to use making handprint keepsakes with the children. They raised a fantastic £200 in the process! Thanks to all involved from everyone at BIBS and Buscot Ward :-) ... See MoreSee Less
