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.


I want to express my heartfelt gratitude for you picking me as your runner for the London Marathon. It's an incredible honour, and I will do the charity proud. Can't wait to see you all on the journey around London! #RunningLondon ... See MoreSee Less

We have our London Marathon 2017 contender! Meet Grant and his mini me, 3 year old Ava! Please do like and comment to wish him well.

Ava spent an anxious 6 months in special care after being born at 25 weeks weighing just 1lb 14oz. Buscot Ward doctors and nurses were involved in saving Ava's life on numerous occasions.

That is why Grant - and indeed the whole family - work tirelessly to raise funds and awareness to do their bit to help families that encounter similar challenges in the future. Grant and his wife both ran the Reading Half Marathon for BIBS in 2016 and raised thousands of pounds.

Above all else their message to parents is "All premature babies are miracle babies, never loose hope!!"
