National Fertility Awareness Week is Monday 30 October- Sunday 5 November 2017. It is your week; save the dates now and please join us in helping all individuals facing fertility issues.

National Fertility Awareness Week aims to raise awareness and change perceptions of fertility issues, as well as raising funds to help us provide much-needed support for the 1 in 6 couples, and others, in the UK who struggle with infertility. This year our fundraising ask is for  #100FertilityFaces to each try to raise £100 for Fertility Network UK. Please sign up today to be one of our #100FertilityFaces.

 Why Fundraise?

Fertility Network UK is the UK’s leading patient-focused fertility charity and we need you to help us continue to provide our free support services to anyone affected by fertility issues.

We receive no guaranteed funding:please donate what you can; it will make a difference. Last year our free Support Line dealt with almost 4,100 enquiries and we want to do even more!

Your donations will help us to:

  • campaign for better access to NHS fertility treatment
  • support and advise all those affected by fertility issues
  • continue to run and extend our free Support Line service
  • increase our regional network of staff to provide direct local support
  • extend our online services and peer support groups
  • recruit and train more volunteers to help you
  • increase the support services for those facing the challenges of childlessness
  • continue to raise awareness of the impact of infertility and the need for fertility education to help protect and maintain future fertility



Join us in celebrating the 40th anniversary of IVF. Our #IVFis40 page reveals the history of IVF treatment, and shares stories over the years from patients, clinics and health professionals. Please send us your #IVFis40 story – email media@fertilitynetworkuk.org


Talking about fertility is one of the best ways to raise awareness, break taboos and shatter myths about being unable to have a baby. That’s why #TalkFertility is at the heart of National Fertility Awareness Week 2017. We want to get people talking about the real facts about fertility – and not the myths and misconceptions.



Men are half of the fertility equation, yet far too often their voices are not heard. Have a look at our #FertilityFellas page to find out what we are doing to support our #FertilityFellas.


After 40 years, it’s time for #IVFGoldStandard for all across the UK. Help us create an IVF Thunderclap to campaign for equitable access to NHS fertility treatment. Let’s speak together and we can make change happen.
