UK charity Bliss has been selected as Stewarts’ Charity of the Year 2024. Bliss exists to give every baby born premature or sick in the UK the best chance of survival and quality of life.

The Stewarts Foundation is donating a grant to support the work of Bliss, to ensure that babies born in neonatal care get the support they need and to develop supportive relationships with their parents and medical professionals.

Each year, Stewarts’ staff submit nominations for a chosen charity of the year. Bliss was included on a shortlist from the nominations, and following a firmwide vote was selected as the Charity of the Year.

In January 2024, representatives from Bliss spoke at Stewarts’ offices about the work done by the charity and how the donation will support their efforts.


Stuart Dench, Managing Partner at Stewarts, comments:

“We are delighted to support Bliss as our charity of the year. We were hugely impressed by the outstanding support Bliss has provided to neonatal care in the UK. We look forward to fundraising throughout 2024.”


Caroline Lee-Davey, Chief Executive at Bliss comments:

“We are delighted to partner with Stewarts as their chosen charity of the year for both their Leeds and London offices for 2024. Every year in the UK over 90,000 babies are born premature or sick in the UK and admitted to neonatal care. Bliss’ mission is to give every single one of these babies the best chance of survival and quality of life, and our vital work simply wouldn’t be possible without the support of fantastic partners like Stewarts. We are so grateful to Stewarts for choosing Bliss as their charity partner in 2024, and we look forward to working together throughout the year to raise as much money as possible to support babies and families.”


More about Bliss

60,000 babies are born prematurely in the UK each year and most premature births are spontaneous, with no clear cause. Many of these babies will need urgent neonatal care after birth. Premature birth can result in lifelong conditions such as cerebral palsy, behavioural and long term health problems. Some research has also found that the earlier a baby is born the higher their risk of having special educational needs at school.

Bliss was founded in 1979 by a group of concerned parents who discovered that no hospital had all the equipment nor the trained staff it needed to safely care for premature and sick babies. Determined to do something, these volunteers formed a charity to give vulnerable babies the care they deserve. Forty years later, Bliss has grown into the leading UK charity for the 90,000 babies born needing neonatal care every year.
