LOCAL INFORMATION

10.4.70.L3
The Jersey Infertility Network
Friends of ISSUE (Fertility support)

Extent:Jersey
Updated 18 November 2013
---------------------------------------------------

The Jersey Infertility Network

1. Formerly the National Association for the Childless. This is a self-help charity for people with fertility problems.

2. The local branch of ISSUE, changed its name to 'The Jersey Infertility Network' in early 2003 as it was felt this gave a clearer indication as to the purpose of the group; to offer support and information to people with fertility problems.

3. The aim of the group is to provide help, support and companionship to couples who are experiencing problems with sub-fertility and who are either considering, undergoing fertility treatment or have undergone treatment and been successful, or who are having to come to terms with their childlessness.

4. It is often difficult to talk to family and friends as they don't and cannot fully understand what the couple is going through and the Group provides a confidential forum where couples can off-load their anxieties and problems. Those patients who have undergone treatment can offer practical tips to others which can be invaluable particularly if the treatment involves going over to the UK which in itself can bring its own problems.

5. Contact: Amanda Rabet, telephone 866931, fax 866932, e-mail This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

6. Meetings are held at The Little Grove Clinic, Rue du Haut, St Lawrence at 7pm on the last Thursday of the month.

Friends of ISSUE

7. Aims are to improve upon existing services and to win friends rather than alienate the existing authority. Friends of ISSUE will work with the Health and Social Services Department and with local specialists.

8. Friends of ISSUE are actively campaigning to help couples for whom treatment is not an option, but who wish to adopt.

9. Friends of ISSUE raise funds for equipment, in just nine months they raised £12,500 towards the cost of a new ultra-sound scanner to be used on patients with fertility problems, this has been placed well away from the Maternity Unit.
