We are dedicated to making a difficult start to life that little bit easier

The Neonatal Trust provides support to families of premature or sick full term babies as they make their journey through neonatal care, the transition home, and onwards. 

We are committed to supporting these courageous families and the people who care for them. We are able to provide the services we do due to the support we receive from many volunteers and also the below Partners. To learn about these great organisations, please click here.

You don't have to have had a baby in a NICU to get involved as a volunteer. Whatever contribution you can make, big or small, your help is very much welcomed by the Trust. You might want to do some knitting, help with managing our database of volunteers, or assist from time to time when you can with running events and fundraising. We are planning a National fundraiser in November 2020, based around World Prematurity Day, and some of the planned activity will be much more successful with volunteer support. Do join our database to be kept up to date with our plans.

Depending on the role, volunteers may be required to undergo a Police Check.

Thank you to The Neonatal Trust's Partners
