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.

Wishing Buscot Graduate Ellie a very happy 15th birthday from the whole BIBS family!

Mum Emma says "Little did I know beforehand the roller coaster of emotion her birth would bring. She's our miracle and we are so incredibly proud of her and will always be eternally grateful to the whole Buscot ward for the care and support we received.

From the nurses, doctors and volunteers you are all walking angels on earth to me. And for that thank you a thousand times."
