Thanks to the Burdett Trust, six neonatal units are being offered a unique opportunity to receive financial and practical support to gain Unicef UK Baby Friendly accreditation. The units will work with us to lead the way in improving outcomes for babies and their families.
We are delighted to announce that the six successful units have been selected:
These units will each receive expert visits, support with training staff, help with audit and project management and generous support to cover assessment costs.
We have had an overwhelmingly positive response, with 37% of all neonatal units in the UK applying. We are thrilled at the level of commitment you have all shown to improving outcomes for vulnerable babies and their parents. It’s been heartening to read your fabulous responses. We hope that you will all continue to pursue Baby Friendly accreditation, and hope to be able to offer more funding opportunites in future.
