25 years of Tommy's

From a homemade campaign run from a broom cupboard in St Thomas' Hospital, to the UK's largest charity funding research into the causes of miscarriage, stillbirth and premature birth. See what Tommy's has achieved in 25 years!

Thanks to our supporters, we are able to grant £1,600,000 a year to vital research into the prevention of baby loss in pregnancy and premature birth.

Here is what this money has enabled us to achieve.

We have come far but there is still a long way to go.

None of these achievements would have been possible without the incredible generosity and hard work of all of our supporters. Thank you for all of your support - we couldn't have done it without you.

Please, help us continue to achieve incredible things for parents across the UK.

I want to support Tommy's lifesaving work

What we do

Our research

  • Team of researchers

    Research into stillbirth

    When a baby dies after 24 weeks of gestation it is called a stillbirth. Incredibly, over 3,500 babies are stillborn every year in the UK and many of these deaths remain unexplained. Tommy’s research is dedicated to improving these shocking statistics.

  • Nurse monitoring premature baby in hospital

    Research into premature birth

    Around 60,000 babies are born prematurely each year in the UK and many suffer lifelong consequences as a result. Preterm birth is the leading cause of neonatal death in the UK.

  • Clinical researcher looking at test tube

    Research into miscarriage

    Miscarriage affects 200,000 couples every year in the UK, with 85% of miscarriages happening in the first 12 weeks. Often parents receive no answers to their questions. We want to change that.
