Make A Referral

Please let us start by saying, we are so sorry for your loss.

Leo’s takes specialist perinatal baby loss referrals from parents, and health care / local authority professionals and VCSE organisations.

Our current funding allows us to provide support to families living within Redcar & Cleveland, and Middlesbrough postcodes only. We are hoping this expands in the future.

We are able to support both parents, and are currently hoping to receive funding to allow our team to support siblings too.

Our perinatal period is from loss up to two years after, we are so sorry, but we are unable to help you if you are further on in your journey.

We can accept referrals from families who experienced pregnancy or baby loss from April 2022.

If you have been affected by any of the following, you will be able to access our service:


Termination for Medical Reasons (We also provide emotional support upon diagnosis. We will be here to hold you, listen, signpost and offer you a safe space to feel.)


Neonatal Loss and Neonatal Palliative Care

If you feel like you can fill the referral form in (please only fill in as much as you feel able to), click on the ‘parent referral form’ below.

If you are a health care professional and need our criteria document, please email us on 

Otherwise, please click on the staff referral form below.

We are not a crisis service, if you feel you are in a mental health emergency and are unable to keep yourself or someone else safe, please contact 999.

At the moment, our team only covers the Redcar & Cleveland and Middlesbrough postcodes and we are sadly unable to support you if you are outside of this area. We are hoping, with funding, to expand this service to wider Teesside postcodes.
