Who are we

Positive Touch was formed to support the RSCH SCBU Babies and their families.
Babies and their families who have spent time at SCBU can use our Facebook page as a support network for all their issues, woes and mile stones that only SCBU graduates and their parents will understand.
So please feel free to post any questions that you feel need answering. You will be surprised how many families have gone or are going through the same thing you are and who will be more than happy to help!
