Newly Diagnosed Families Weekend
- FREE for members
Our Newly Diagnosed Families weekends (NDFW) are free events that support parents who have recently found out their child has a bleeding disorder. We bring together experts in bleeding disorders care to share knowledge and experiences so families get the help they need to ensure their child receives the best care.
Our NDFW events are open to families with a child/children (aged 0 to 17 years) diagnosed with a bleeding disorder in the past four years.
Our sessions include presentations and demonstrations, giving everyone a chance to ask questions and find out what they need to know. It allows you to find out more about your child’s bleeding disorder. The weekend aims to give a brief overview of the bleeding disorders that affect the families attending each event.

They work with you to guarantee that those charged to their care have the best possible time and are entertained at the most key parts of this event. All childcare staff hold an enhanced DBS certificate, ensuring the professionalism and character of the people looking after your children.
