Who are we?

SNICU Parents' Group is a registered charity set up and run by parents whose babies have been cared for by the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at Southmead Hospital.

One of the largest in the South West, the Unit provides specialist intensive and high dependency care for babies who have a range of special health problems that put their lives at risk.

What do we do?

Our aim at SNICU Parents' Group is to fundraise for the Unit so that more babies can receive the specialist support and care they need to survive and thrive as well as providing emotional support to parents of sick children.

To this end we organise regular fundraising events and use the money raised to buy essential equipment and improve the Unit’s facilities and services.

We work with the staff on various projects for the long-term benefit of the children. For example, arranging joint publicity for fundraising events and sponsorship for staff to attend conferences and specialist training.

We provide emotional and social support to babies, parents and families by a mixture of individual support and year round social events such as:

  • The Annual Summer Fayre and Toddlers' Marathon
  • Christmas Party for the children of the Unit
  • Weekly attendance at the Unit by volunteers from the Group

We are also responsible for the safe administration of the charity.
