TinyLife and QUB Parent Focus Group

TinyLife and QUB Need Your Help!!

Do you remember leaving hospital after the birth of your premature baby and the impact, feelings and challenges this brought along with it? For many, it can be a difficult and emotional time.

TinyLife and QUB are developing a website to help parents when babies are discharged and we’re keen to include your thoughts on the content, how it is presented and what would work for you.


If you are the parent of a premature baby discharged within the past year we invite you to come along to the focus group in your local area for a chat, share your views and tell us what you think should be included.

To register your interest in attending a focus group contact Pauline at TinyLife

Tel 028 9081 5050 or email pauline@tinylife.org.uk


The groups will be led by researchers from QUB and if you are interested we will send you out further information. Expenses of childcare £20 and travel at 45p per mile will be reimbursed.

We can provide a space for your childminder and baby/ies if we know in advance. This does not need to be a registered childminder but could be a family member or friend who is willing to care for your baby/ies either at home or in the space that TinyLife can provide at the centre. If you cannot get anyone to look after your baby/ies but would still like to come please speak to your family support member Janice (mob: 07702 384786) or Jenny (mob: 07702 966831).
