Peeps is the only UK charity* dedicated to supporting those affected by HIE. HIE stands for hypoxic-ischaemic encephalopathy. It is a lack of oxygen to the brain that can cause injury.

Our vision is that every person in the UK touched by HIE can access appropriate support at any time. We want to raise awareness of HIE and ensure people know what it is and how we can help.

We provide support to parents, families & friends of those affected by HIE (Hypoxic-Ischaemic Encephalopathy), raising awareness of HIE.

Some of the things we do include:

  • Provide information about HIE
  • Buddy/peer support
  • Counselling and therapy
  • Funding for equipment
