SSNAP was formed in 1982 by a group of parents who recognised the need to assist with fundraising for additional resources for the Newborn Care Unit, or SCBU as it was then called. In that time we have helped hundreds of families, funding pioneering new equipment and made sure that parents feel comfortable and cared for whilst their baby is on the Neonatal Care Unit
'I was lost and SSNAP were there to pick me up. They provided a room just seconds from the neo-natal unit for me to stay in and their volunteers were there the next day with a cup of tea, biscuits and even a shoulder to cry on.'
WHAT WE DO
Providing Comfort & Hope
At the centre of everything we do is supporting families whilst their baby is in the Neonatal Care Unit.
We provide support to parents through our Family Support Team and volunteers as well as practical help with transport, accommodation and improving the non-clinical areas of the Neonatal Care Unit.
Improving care at The John Radcliffe
We invite staff on the Neonatal Care Unit to submit applications for SSNAP to fund medical equipment for use on the unit.
This ranges from new, innovative equipment to essentials like breast pumps and reclining chairs for improved kangaroo care.
Improving Outcomes In Neonatal Care
We are committed to investing in the future of care for babies in neonatal care. We are fortunate enough to work with leading researchers from the university of Oxford on groundbreaking research in neonatal medicine.
