In the UK, 1 in 10 babies need specialist care at birth. SSNAP supports premature and sick newborn babies, their parents and the amazing NHS staff that care for them.  We operate from the John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxfordshire, a hospital with specialist support that cares for babies from all over the country.  For nearly 40 years we have supported those born in, the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, the Dependency Units and the supporting maternity wards.

Imagine your newborn baby needing specialist care at birth. Instead of those very special days getting to know your baby as a family, you’re catapulted into an unfamiliar world of incubators, wires, medical tests and interventions. While your baby has specialist treatment, we provide emotional and practical support to help you through the trauma & upheaval. We’re there to help families cope, we provide state-of-the-art medical equipment and nursing expertise that could save babies lives.

SSNAP is celebrating the charity’s 40th Anniversary this year and the charity has an appeal going to raise an additional £40,000 for SSNAP.
