The launch of our animation “A Stay in Neonatal Care”, marked the completion of many months of hard work by not only members of the charity, but healthcare professionals and supporters of The NICU Foundation. We couldn’t have created this much needed resource without the fundraising taking place by many generous people across the country, many of whom have experienced time in a Neonatal Unit and we’re very excited to have been shortlisted alongside some amazing charities.”
