For over 16 years Its dedicated teams have been campaigning for equitable access to NHS fertility treatment in the UK; representing those affected by fertility issues at regional and national level as well as promoting fertility health education.
The service is offered throughout the UK and no other fertility organisation offers the diverse range of services and support that FNUK provide.

Central to the work of the registered charity is its support function which is available both online and via group activities. It has taken its Fight For Fair Funding across the British Isles and has been extremely successful in changing minds and attitudes of those holding health budgets.
FNUK’s work is not sadly done. More and more pockets of health funding for fertility treatment are disappearing and a sustained effort is required to ensure equal access for all who wish to have their fertility treatment within the UK NHS system. FNUK receives funding from the Scottish Government and recognises the improvement in accessibility which has occurred on the basis of this relationship; it receives support from the National Lottery in Wales and statutory assistance from the Northern Ireland Health and Social Care Board. It does not, however receive any additional statutory support and is reliant on its corporate partners and the generosity of its supporters to ensure its services are adequately funded.
The International Fertility Company is very pleased to be working with FNUK to ensure this independent and vitally important organisation continues to support those in the UK who are seeking practical and emotional assistance and information which will help them address any fertility issues, questions and problems they may have.
