How You Can Help

Friends of RPA Newborn Care

We invite personal, corporate and community involvement and engagement with our department in whatever way possible. All funds raised and resources donated have a direct and lasting impact on our ability to offer the very best care to our babies in four significant areas:

Equipment and resources:

Supported by committed staff, state of the art equipment and the latest resources help to provide the best health outcome for babies. 


Providing care supported by evidence based practice and research ensures we are meeting the needs of our tiny patients effectively and efficiently. Research and evaluation is paramount in ensuring we are providing the very best care.

Staff development:

Our staff are the backbone of all our work. Without their tireless commitment, dedication and energy we simply would not be able to do the work that we do. Investing in staff through professional development ensures that we are supporting and educating those delivering front line care.

Family support:

Our department is committed to family centred care and it is essential we support all those involved in our patient’s life. This is done in a number of ways including the Family Support Team, providing NicView cameras for 24 access to connecting with baby, and offering Developmental Care.


To support the care of vulnerable babies, donate online here or contact Head of Department Dr Mark Greenhalgh or Community Engagement Manager Danielle Achikian.

 You can also assist our nursery family by giving in other ways such as donating new children's books or new babygro suits, making scent hearts or cot sheets. Our needs are constantly changing and we would appreciate you contacting Danielle to discuss your ideas.
