Our charity is dedicated to supporting Lister's NICU and SCBU by funding the very best medical kit and equipment, refurbishment and improvements to our family rooms, items to increase comfort for the parents as well as advanced staff training to develop the skills and knowledge of our medical team.

We work very closely with the unit  staff and the Lister Neonatal Families Group to create and develop projects that will enhance care and practice on the units so we can continue to provide an extraordinary service to local families.

This wouldn't be possible without the incredible support we receive from grateful families and generous individuals and organisations in our local community.

Here are some examples of projects we have funded to support the unit thanks to donations we have received:

  • Brand new family room and showers to create an amazing space for parents to rest, relax and refuel whilst staying on the unit
  • Head sets for new mothers to be able to use on the unit
  • Upgraded expressing kits to encourage breast feeding
  • Oxygen Saturation Monitors for parents to use at home
  • Additional Milk Warmers for the 'rooming in' so baby and mother can spend optimum time together before discharge
  • Mural to brighten up the neonatal corridor

"Thank you for looking after our son Benjamin when he was born and spent a short spell on the NICU. The whole team were amazing and we will be eternally grateful for the care we all received during that difficult time"
