Baby Friendly announces the 18 neonatal units selected to take part in the National Neonatal Project

Home > Baby Friendly announces the 18 neonatal units selected to take part in the National Neonatal Project

Following a very competitive application process, the UNICEF UK Baby Friendly Initiative is pleased to announce the 18 neonatal units which have been selected to take part in the National Neonatal Project.

These units will be provided with a range of support opportunities over a three-year period in order to achieve Baby Friendly accreditation between 2021-2024.

The Baby Friendly team were overwhelmed with applications from nearly half of the neonatal units in the UK, and were very disappointed to have to turn down so many fantastic submissions due to a small number of allocated spaces available in the programme.
